Every individual need of each child is carefully explored prior to enrolment. We do our best to cater for your child within the framework of Thinkers.inq. If we are unable to cater for your child we will do our best to provide information regarding other locations and specialty service provisions.
We accept enrolments for three, four and five year-olds. If you’d like your child to start at the beginning of the school year (January) they will need to be turning four in that year.

Your child will be empowered to be a problem solver and a critical thinker. This means that their thinking will be transferable into a primary school space, influencing their confidence and preparing them for whatever comes their way.
Thinkers.inq will provide all food. Our food programmer is Alexx Stuart of Real Food and Low Tox Living. She is also part of the Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. For more information on our delicious and nutritious menu please see our Nutrition page.
