Early Years Learning is an essential element of the learning journey and the Victoria Avenue centre reflects that with an inclusive environment and a curriculum that encourages a love of education that will last a lifetime. The centre provides a visual collaborative programme with active contributions from children, families and staff a vital component. The well designed curriculum takes its guidelines from established demagoguery and then extends on this by drawing inspiration from the children’s own interests. Community and family events contribute to planned excursions and staff enjoy initiating fun projects and creating unique learning opportunities that the children will cherish.

Menus follow a four week cycle and are reviewed every six months.
