We Must Get Beyond the Distractions

Look ever so carefully at this brilliant Nat Geo pic. It is amazing. Look very closely and see something totally different…. It’s amazing how the shadow is larger than the camel. The shadow distracts from the real thing… or does it? That which we first see…

Testimonials

'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.

I remember the sunny evening we visited Thinkers.inq. A space of possibility: colourful, creative and inspired. 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...
