  • Supporting learning through play: we understand that a child’s main occupation is play and the key to successful learning is engagement.
  • Supporting collaborative approach to therapy: we appreciate the importance of a multidisciplinary team and know that collaboration between team members leads to better outcomes for the children and their families.
  • Supporting all languages: we recognise that English-medium academic and professional goals are only part of life. We support people to use both English and other languages spoken by the family and community.
