ABOUT OUR SETTING
We are a small Preschool who deliver the EYFS to children 2 & above. Over 5 days our setting is open from 9am until 3pm with an optional early bird drop off at 8:30. We are registered with Ofsted and accept 2 year old funded children as well as 3/4 year old universal 15 hours funding and a very limited number of 30 hour funded children.
We are based in a central location, occupying rooms in a very busy community centre. Our outdoor facilities lead directly from the classroom and promote free-flow learning. We offer additional activities including; cooking, yoga, Minnie Movers and French. The children are able to plant, grow and harvest herbs, fruit and vegetables. This allows them to develop their knowledge of healthy eating as well as a practical understanding of the plant lifecycle.
Our setting opened in September 2017 and this year we celebrate our second birthday!
