What do specialist teachers do for children?

Our specialist teachers are experts in all areas of child development, learning and social and emotional wellbeing. They will work with you and your child at home, preschool or school to ensure that your child is learning and developing through their everyday activities and interests that engage and motivate them.

We believe that every hour of every day is a learning opportunity for young children. Our specialist teachers are passionate about your child’s education. They will work with other educators to support your child to play, learn and make friends at preschool and school.
