Our dedicated team of Early Years Educators is committed to providing a nurturing atmosphere where children are empowered to explore, experiment, and discover. Our educators will create age-appropriate activities tailored to each child’s unique interests and abilities. They will pose open-ended questions, encourage deep investigation, and help children make connections, encouraging critical thinking skills from the earliest stages of development.

At Fennies, we adopt a child-led philosophy that encourages children to explore topics that ignite their curiosity. As they delve deeper into their interests, their knowledge and confidence naturally expand, setting the foundation for a lifetime of learning and growth.
