Welcome to our Pre-school...

We know that starting pre-school is a very important milestone in your child’s (and your) life. To ensure a positive start, you and your child will need the support and encouragement that we can provide. We can reassure you that your child is in the care of caring, friendly, nurturing staff providing the highest possible childcare in a warm, safe, stimulating environment, helping and encourage your child to learn and develop, promoting  independence, self-confidence, consideration for others and good manners.

For your child, this could be the first time they have been apart from you on a regular basis. Some children adapt very quickly, others take a little longer it’s all perfectly normal. Either situation we will support you all to adjust to their changes and settle in well.


The aims of the pre-school are:

·         To provide a stimulating environment for the children to learn and develop from 2 years to school age.

·         To ensure the safety of the children at all times.

·         To achieve the desirable outcomes of the Foundation Stage Curriculum applicable to 3 & 4 year olds.

·         To provide equality and diversity to all the children and families in our pre-school.

·         To make the pre-school available to children and families in the local community.

·         To help and support children with special educational needs.

·         To help children and families to transition onto school with confidence.
