The term after their 3rd birthday sees your child move up to our pre-school room.
Transition to school starts from an early age, during their time in Pre – school links are made with the school your child will attend.
This is where we will prepare them for their journey towards moving up to their first primary school.
By means of developmentally appropriate play activities and a high level of individual adult input, we offer a curriculum that leads to nationally approved Early Learning Goals and prepares children to progress confidently through the foundation stage.
We are also able to offer 15 or 30 hours of free childcare. We are flexibly with how to claim these free hours. They can be used from 7:30am to 6:00pm over 51 weeks of the year. For more information speak to us or visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.
We accept employer supported childcare vouchers and sibling discounts.
*Sessions can be varied to accommodate your individual childcare needs, please don’t hesitate to ask.
