Welcome to Year 2
Here you will find an overview of all the exciting learning experiences in Year 2. In Year 2 we inspire and nurture our children through fun and engaging opportunities. We make the most of our outdoor environment by enjoying hands-on experiences to help the children to reach their full potential. In this unique setting we provide challenges to increase independence and resilience for their future. Aiming to help our children flourish and develop a healthy growth mind-set, we have many Eureka moments!
We hope you enjoy finding out about our fantastic learning!
