Our aim is to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment in which your child can have access to an excellent grounding in Preschool Stage Education. Learning to play socially with other children and gaining confidence in their own abilities and skills will equip your child with the independence they will need in the move towards mainstream education. Children within our preschool will be following the Foundation Stage Curriculum. This curriculum is divided into seven areas of learning. Activities within these areas include independent structured play where children can learn through their own discoveries and observations; activities planned by staff which the children can perform on their own, with an aim to guiding the children with their discoveries; and adult-directed activities which include some direct teaching.

  • A specially tailored curriculum leading to the Foundation Stage learning goals.
  • Individual care and attention made possible by a keyperson system.
  • Fun and friendship with children and other adults.
  • Opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved in the activities of the group and in your own child's development
  • Continuous development from 2 right up to age 5, within the same familiar environment.
  • Seamless transition from preschool into school.
  • Purpose-built premises, specifically tailored to the needs of children (ages 2 - 5).
  • Highly qualified, friendly, caring team of staff. Preschool staff will work with the children and their families to provide the best possible education for your child, adapted to your child's age and needs, throughout the Preschool Stage.
  • Secluded and secure outdoor area, backing on to school fields, specifically tailored to the needs of Preschool aged children. The outdoor area will provide climbing apparatus, nature area, discovery areas, shelters, seating for quiet moments, etc.
  • Equal opportunities, across the whole of our community.
