Fundamentals Preschools & Nursery (Marshland & Merivale)

Our Children enjoy a CHALLENGING and FUN environment that encourages them to think, act and succeed in mind, body and spirit so they can become confident, independent lifelong learners.

Both of our Preschools (Marshland and Merivale) offer a home away from home for your child. We have onsite Gym rooms, with highly skilled and trained teachers, a large range of gymnastics equipment and a philosophy that enables your child to be in control of their own learning.
