Welcome To Scoresby Village Childcare Centre
We bring along a very warm and friendly welcome to our centre. We trust that your child’s experience will feel like an extension of your home. By working together we will provide an environment that promotes quality care and education for your child, a place where they will be accepted for who they are, and a place where laughter and play are cherished and where children’s innate curiosity is captured and given a chance to grow.
We believe that childhood is like no other time in a child life. It is a time for exploring… For creating… For Discovery about one’s self… For meeting the world… For learning how to learn… For being accepted. It is a time for growing and a time for being allowed the time to be a child.
Thank you once again for choosing us to care for your child; we look forward to a long and happy association with your family.
We would like to take this opportunity to let you know a little bit about us and our centre.
