What we do
We provide a wide range of activities for the children including sand and water play, art and craft, cooking, clay and dough, songs and music. There is an outdoor play area, which is used daily in all but the most extreme weather conditions. Pre-school has a wide variety of books and board games and a computer with a range of software suitable for pre-school children. There is plenty of chance for imaginative play in the home corner or with toys such as the train set, cars, airport, doll’s house, farm and zoo. The children’s activities are planned to work towards their learning outcomes as set by the Early Years Foundation Stage. Ofsted regularly inspects us and inspection reports are available on their website (latest inspection report).

Children learn best through play. As practitioners we appreciate the learning which takes places when children are able to follow their own ideas and are supported by an adult who can enable their learning by respecting, understanding and allowing children empowerment over their environment. We celebrate a child’s uniqueness and encourage respect and social interaction.
Our vision for future development is to continue to offer a good quality provision to the community which is open and inclusive to all, supporting children’s individual needs and allowing freedom of choice and growth within a safe and happy environment.
