We have an ‘open door’ policy and welcome all parent/carers to come and visit us when they wish to.


We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which covers the seven areas of learning:

  1. Personal
  2. Social Emotional
  3. Communication and Language
  4. Physical Development
  5. Literacy
  6. Mathematical Development
  7. Understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design.

Snack time and lunch sessions are an ideal opportunity for the children to develop their own independence in self-care, by washing and drying their own hands, pouring their own drinks and self-serving food. They develop their social skills with their peers and extend on their vocabulary use and develop their listening and understanding skills.

​We have a closed Facebook group where parent/carers can see what the children have been learning. This gives parents access 24 hours a day to their child's activities.
