What did Ofsted say –

All children make good progress from their starting point and are very well prepared for their future learning in school.

Children enjoy learning as they explore their environment and use their imagination.

Children’s social and emotional development are supported exceptionally well. They are very well prepared for their transition into pre-school and into school.

Staffs are excellent role models.

Please contact the pre school for an application form. It is advisable to apply before your child’s first birthday as the setting operates a waiting list system.

We admit children to pre school as their names reach the top of the waiting list, depending on their age and places available. If it is the child’s nursery year then they will be offered five mornings a week, if it is their pre-nursery year then they will be offered two or three mornings a week depending on availability.
