children in our care opportunities to discover the world around them,

Our staff recruitment is based on the qualifications, experience,

Each child has a “Learning Journey” in which we record their progress
in each area of learning. These help us to identify individual
development needs and to plan activities designed to address these. You
are always very welcome to see your child’s records and to discuss them
with the staff team at any time.
We hold formal parents’ evenings twice a
year so that you have an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress
and achievements in more detail.
Our aim is to help the children in our care to approach a major
change in their lives starting school with the confidence, skills
and enthusiasm for learning that will give them a valuable and enduring
