Learning Through Play
Our Pre-School is well equipped with a variety of toys, crafts and resources to provide great opportunities for learning.
Our children are encouraged to learn through play, self selecting activities that they would like to play with to encourage independence. Our children learn new skills and concepts through play and mixing with other children and adults so by the age of five they are confident and ready to enter full-time school.
With a high ratio of staff to children we are able to provide a good level of individual attention which is so important in these early years.
