Here at Sagewood we teach the children through play, they learn about the value of learning, reading, experiencing new things and about families, they experience many facets of life through visits to our library, outings to cultural villages, Zoo’s and visits from the Fire Station and even a vet during pet week. The children have a weekly theme and we expose them to as many different forms of learning and encourage individuality in all of them. Music is a valuable part of our curriculum and allows the learners free expression in the form of movement and playing of instruments.
Our PTA is very involved and often has socials and family events, thus supporting their children in everyway!
