At The Learning Terrace ....

We work hard to find opportunities to show the wider community how capable, creative and intelligent children are. We see children as a posser of rights and an active and valuable member of society. As professional Educators we take our role seriously and see value in sharing our knowledge and experience with not just the Education sector but the wider community.
