Philosophy

Children are cared for in a safe, healthy and stimulating enviroment where their needs are met and their learning is fostered.

All children will be treated with dignity and respect. Behaviour is managed with a firm but fair approach where clear boundaries and limits are in place. Children with unacceptable behaviour will be worked with on our steps behaviour program.

We aim to create a family centered caring approach were children feel Creative Kids is an extension of home.
