Once Upon a Time Children’s Centre

Once Upon a Time Children’s Centre provides a quality program and conditions for your child to develop positive self-identity within a setting that fosters social, emotional and mental wellbeing. Our educational philosophy integrates age-appropriate approaches and is inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy.

We particularly promote self-directed play as one of the prime ways in which children learn about the world and those who live in it. We regard such play as a real expression of the child’s individuality that always contains meaning and purpose for them.
