I look forward to welcoming you and your children to the St Peter’s family. We strive to inspire imagination and wonder in your children, while motivating their desire to learn.
We provide children with a warm and nurturing environment that allows them to feel connected and loved, which will set the foundation for all future learning and development.
The essence of all we are and all we do as a Pre-Prep is built on deep love for and commitment to early childhood education. This is a collaboration between you and us in order to raise our children together.
We aim to give children sparkling eyes and busy minds every day.
