- Who am I?
- Who are we?

Value of the Month
September: Value of the month is Respect
Through this value the children will also be learning about tolerance,friendship, justice, liberty, responsibility, equality, democracy, (Rule of Law), and freedom.
We will be teaching this value through opportunities as they arise: - using stories, songs, games, circle time, and other planned activities to encourage children to make good choices.
