About us

At the Cafe Institute we are inspired by the potential to make a difference in the lives of young learners when our collective strengths, assets and resources are fully engaged.



What are your hopes and dreams for all children? As caring adults we all have a key role in supporting our children’s potential for healthy development and success in literacy and learning.
