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, Social and Emotional Development (Children are encouraged to form good relationships with other children and adults, sharing, caring, helping and being kind.)

  2. Physical Development: (Playing is fun, big equipment needs to be mastered and fine motor skills such as mark making, small construction and scissor work.) The children will learn the importance of good health, healthy diet, exercise and fresh air in their daily outdoors adventure walk.

  3. Communication and Language (appreciating language, stories, music, books, writing, learning to listen and take part in a group situation.)

  4. Literacy (books, writing materials, posters, letters and sounds.)

  5. Mathematics (counting, shape, size, number rhymes and weighing.)

  6. Understanding of the world (learning through varied play experience, sand, nature, ICT and special festivals.)

  7. Expressive Arts & Design (painting, pencils, gluing, model making, music, crafts, colours, role play, building and dance.)
