Our Ocean Room is a large hall and is extremely versatile throughout the day.

In the mornings the Ocean Room is set up as a class room where our over 3's do their morning registration, circle time and preschool lessons. Preschool lessons alternate between maths and literacy weekly. They are tailored to meet children's individual needs, with 3 or more activities for the children to choose from. 

From 10.15am the Ocean and Turtle rooms are free flowing for all the children (over 2) to be able to choose their preferred activities.

The Ocean Room is also used as a dining hall and an area for our parties, annual performances and for our extracurricular sessions which include Music Squirts, Mini Movers and Sensory Play. The Ocean Room is also used an an exercise area on really bad weather days.
