At the pre school we believe that young children best develop when
learning through play in a safe and fun environment, providing your child
with opportunities to grow and develop in a warm, stimulating atmosphere
where there are plenty of opportunities to learn and practice new skills,
make friends, develop confidence and enjoy new experiences in safe secure
surroundings. Our caring, dedicated staff support and encourage children
as they follow their development through the Early Years Foundation Stage
Curriculum. We regularly observe and assess individual children’s progress
and work with parents to encourage their developing skills.
We offer 15 hours per week free Government entitlement to some two
year olds and all children who are over three years old.
Our setting provides both indoor and outdoor facilities for children
between the ages of 2 to 5 years.
We are affiliated to the Pre-school Learning Alliance which is the
national educational charity established to help playgroups provide
high quality care and education for the under-fives.
We also believe that parents and carers have the most influence in a
child’s life, viewing them as our partners in the education of their
children. We believe in the importance of community. Our surrounding
community is a wonderful resource for learning, as well as getting out to
explore, we invite local people in to share skills and experiences with
Our staff aim to devote their time to all aspects of a
child’s growth and development, language and literacy, physical,
emotional and social.
