Loreto’s strong reputation for academic and sporting success is testament to these advantages.

  • Great Start is a nifty little website from the Department of Education and Child Development. It has lots of different ideas for communicating with your kids, playing with your kids and even cooking with your kids!

Most importantly, I think, is there are many things on the website that you probably already doing with your kids, but the website explains why they are important and helps introduce questioning techniques that will assist your child in becoming an active learner.

  • Twelftree Reserve is a gorgeous College Park Playground and perfect to take the younger kids to burn up some energy or explore in the outdoors, and would make a perfect place to have a kids birthday party. There are two slightly separated, bark chipped playgrounds - about 15m from each other. The first caters for walking to 3 year olds, while the second caters for slightly older kids (say, 3-8 years). For the littlies, there is a stepped ramp with platform and toddler slide, a fire truck easily accessible for walkers and a number of spring rockers which my 2 year old could manage to scale and rock to his heart's content. In the older area there are 4 swings (2 'baby' enclosed swings and 2 regular swings), a larger slide with ladder and a couple of 2 and 4 way see-saws. There is also a half court basketball court with backboard and hoop, 2 free use gas BBQs and a water bubbler. There are numerous seating options, but only 3 with tables.
