Unwanted items we would love include magazines, paper, and used clean cushions and rugs to create some quiet spaces around the Centre and outdoor area.

We have added a composting bin as a part of our sustainable practices. The children are placing their food scraps in small bins tat are then emptied in to the compost bin.

Our Quality Profiles will be given a special place in the foyer soon so that they available for parents to read.
