We want every child within our nursery and preschool to achieve, and believe strongly that every child is unique and matters very much.


Alongside the Government's   'Every Child Matters' and Early Years Foundation Stage campaigns we plan your child's activities to help them achieve.


Learning is all through play and allowing the child to lead the play.  We work with the following goals in mind:
