About the employer

Our aim at Scarlet Heights is to provide high quality childcare in a setting where children are excited to come each day.

Equally important is to provide you, as parents, with a setting where you feel happy to leave your child, knowing that they are safe, valued and loved.

We strive to provide a "home from home" environment which at the same time is fun, educational, stimulating and caring to ensure that each child thrives.
