About Us

 We have been in existence since 1965 and our experienced staff who have attended Child Care courses including NVQ level III are     very aware of the value of the many activities presented.

   

  We put into practice the Early Learning Goals to prepare your child for nursery/school to cover the following areas:-

 

  1. Personal and Social Development (Socialisation with other children and more importantly other adults, sharing, caring and helping).

  2. Physical Development: (Playing is fun, big equipment needs to be mastered and finer skills such as pencil control, small construction and scissor work).

  3. Knowledge and understanding of the world (learning through varied play experience, sand, nature).

  4. Creative Development (painting, pencils, glueing and model making etc.)

  5. Communicaton, language and literacy (appreciating language, stories, music, books, writing, learning to listen and conform in a group situation.

  6. Mathematics (counting, shape, size, number rhymes).
