Opening in 2011 along with the rest of Namadgi School, Playbase at Namadgi has become an integral part of the Namdgi School community, catering to over 300 families in its short history. Our philosophy is to offer both a quality and rewarding childcare experience for all children in the school community. We strongly promote respect, tolerance, sportsmanship, social and personal development, positive friendships and of course fun.
