The learning needs of children change as they grow from 2½ to 5. Every child is unique.
So, our Pre-School plans a curriculum that takes each individual child into account. We assess their age, stage of development and learning needs.
Your child’s Key Worker is closely involved with this process to ensure that each child receives the attention and support that they need to develop and grow.
Our standards are inspected and regulated by the Government’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted).
In February 2018, our last inspection, we were delighted to be ranked as "Good". You can find more details here.
