An early years and preschool program that celebrates children’s creative thinking, problem solving and imagination through purposeful play


Creative thinking is the process of capturing, exploring & developing thoughts to identify & build the potential of every child.


Using play purposefully to become immersed in the moment, encouraging uninhibited ideas and thinking drives learning.

nutrition program

Our food program will be one that supports our children in both mind and body, giving them slow burning steady fuel snacks.


We are an early years community and preschool incorporating project based learning and play based problem solving.

Our philosophy is based upon the principle of educére: to draw out and lead forth. Our aim is to draw out young learners’ capacity and to take them on a journey to explore the world around them. This idea is what we aspire to at Thinkers.inq, for all children, families and communities; for now, and the future.

Play is a key component to the development of every person and purpose-filled play sets every person up to flourish in life. As such we see staff, families children and ourselves alike, as competent players and resourceful researchers; ready to learn, grow and adapt to our changing world.

‘We absolutely love your centre and have nothing but praise for you all. Starting a new place brings with it some fears particularly with separation anxiety, but each day we have had no problems with drop-offs. We thought our daughter would be upset over separation again, but she and her brother are happy to go with no tears at all. That is amazing and shows the comfort and kindness you all show them.

The “word on the street” is what an amazing preschool you have, and I promise that we are adding to that with praise for all that you do.

Since sending our 3-year-old son to Thinkers.inq it has been wonderful to see his progress, they create a really positive environment for the kids! The learning strategies have supported his development and it is a pleasure to see his confidence and enthusiasm grow week on week. He is always excited to show and share with us the day’s activities. A great team that have created delightful surroundings accompanied by an excellent healthy food menu. We feel fortunate to be part of the Thinkers.inq family.

We absorbed a crafts corner with easels and brushes, a ‘corner store’, wooden furniture, cute picnic tables ready for pint-sized picnickers. Further inspection revealed the outdoor amphitheater, the organic gardens, fruit trees, handmade puzzles and high grade, integrated technology. No heavy reliance on plastic toys and ‘babysitting’ here!

The family environment and warmth, the resources available, the inquiry based programming, the space and use of it and to just top it off the amazing healthy no ‘nasties’ food focus…
