Everything we do is centred around our amazing children and it is our mission to provide the highest-quality childcare and education for your child. This is a magical time in your child’s development and it’s our job to provide a place that encourages children to explore the world around them!
At Invitation 2 Play, we help children expand their comfort zones in a way that’s safe, secure, and highly individualised. We want your child to feel comfortable, encouraged and supported, viewing our nursery as a home away from home, and our wonderful team as an extension of their family.
At Invitation 2 Play, we have a team of childcare experts and educators who are at the forefront of the latest industry innovations in childhood development and learning.
We are also committed to partnering with parents to raise enthusiastic, smart and capable children!
Our curriculum focuses on empathy, kindness, curiosity and respect for others and the environment.
Through interactions with other children and educational materials, your child will learn about the world while forming friendships that could last a lifetime.

Our one-stop service and out-of-school clubs cater to busy parents with children up to 11 years old (up to 16 years old with a statement) who attend surrounding schools.
