professional development. We are also proud to announce that we were granted a GOOD in our OFSTED inspection last year.

We passionately believe in providing a positive, caring & stimulating atmosphere. Our Ethos is
'Learning through Play ' which is accomplished by the use of resources, individual & team play activities.
We believe that this encourages children to become independent, & confident in their choices & eager
to move onto their next stage of their education & life. Our aim is to achieve the best from them & to ensure that they mix with their peer group, learn social skills such as sharing communication & caring for
each other. Attending a Pre-school promotes friendships which they will maintain through to school & then hopefully into adulthood.
