James Street is a beautiful preschool with a wonderful outdoor adventure play area. The teachers are dedicated, kind and caring and get to know each individual child and their families. A wonderful preschool where children feel a deep sense of belonging and ownership.
Great nutritious lunches and Kai available throughout the day, made by a chef on site.
