These areas are promoted in a caring, stimulating and varied environment. The timetable of a typical day can be found here.

Parents’ and Carers’ Involvement

We have always enjoyed the support of a strong committee of parents, whose input helps form Pre-School policies and who organise events and fund raising for the benefit of the children. All parents automatically become Parent-Committee members and each family has one vote in General Meetings, normally held annually.

We recognise that parents have a lot to offer and that children’s experiences at home are highly significant to achievement, and when parents/carers and staff in each setting work together to support children’s learning, the result can have a measurable and lasting effect upon children’s achievement.
