St. Thomas the Apostle
Dedicated to the Individuality of Children
Our mission is to help children acquire a positive attitude towards school and learning. We achieve this by providing a warm and nurturing learning environment where children can explore and experiment to develop a feeling of self-worth and independence. We are co-learners with the children helping every child become capable, competent and full of potential at all times.
We recognize that when children play in a safe, comfortable and stimulating environment, alongside curious, creative, attentive, caring and respectful teachers, they will flourish in all development areas — social, creative, language, emotional and physical.
As a non-denominational, multi-cultural, community-based nursery school, our staff endeavours to be respectful and sensitive to the values, needs and beliefs of the families we serve.
