Child Side School is surrounded by woodlands, pasture and bush. Adjacent to our fully fenced school is a lake on public open space with paths that meander around it. Our indoor areas are a home away from home, and our outdoor areas are full of purposeful nooks such as the sandpit, music area, tyre mound, play equipment, lizard pond, wetlands and mountain bike track. Our environment offers both comfort and challenge which is vital for purposeful learning.
