The Faith Difference
Choosing the right school for your child can be a daunting task. In fact, sometimes it’s challenging to even know what questions to ask let alone the logistics of getting children to school, navigating curriculum and understanding the individual needs of your child/ren. On average children spend over 2,500 days at school, so as a parent you want to know they are in an environment that is just right for them.
