Staffing, Policies  etc


We are delighted to be re-opening our Preschool on Monday 8 June!  Things will look a bit different and numbers are limited but we will still be providing stimulating activities for your children and look forward to seeing them again!

We still have some space for September 2020 (even for children out of catchment).  Please get in touch if you are interested.  We look forward to hearing from you!

We had an Ofsted inspection in December 2018. 

They judged us as GOOD overall and OUTSTANDING for Personal Development.
