The skills, knowledge and attitude to learning that children acquire in early childhood are vitally important as they are the base on which they build their lives. We are totally committed to providing opportunities for your child to develop to their fullest potential.
Children will be encouraged to develop the necessary skills, and gain the appropriate knowledge during their time at pre-school, through a variety of play activities and experiences. We will provide a stimulating environment to achieve this through our themes, topics, discussions and activities.
At a quick glance, it may appear that your child is ‘just playing’, but we view everything your child does as a learning opportunity. We encourage children to learn independently by providing appropriate experiences, and our staff are skilled in extending your child’s learning through their play, at an appropriate level for their stage of development.
Oral Health Programme
Children love brushing their teeth with friends. This programme teaches them how important oral hygiene is and encourages them to carry out the good practice at home. We were awarded our ‘Oral Heath Champions’ award
A visit from Zoolab certainly sparked the imagination of the children. It introduced us to lots of new creatures. Children handled snakes, cockroaches, stick insects to name but a few. This gave encouragement to the ones who were a little unsure of the animals. The hour was fun, engaging and interesting.
We had some high energy dance sessions with Sarka Brock from ‘Strictly School Dancing’
Children learn different skills through dancing: it develops whole body coordination and a sense of rhythm, at the same time as having fun.
In martial arts sessions with Abitha Nanthakumar, children develop self confidence which helps their overall performance at school, home and later in life.
Rugby with Andy Thompson from Rugby Tots was great fun and helped the children experience a different sport to keep themselves active and healthy.

Reading Corner & Quiet Area
Alongside of our various other activities, we encourage our children to spend some quality time in our Reading Corner and Quiet Area. Story telling is one of their favorite parts of the day. We provide a variety of books for children to explore and learn. Children love to go through the pictures books. We encourage them to expand their own imagination via this space.
