Our team of highly trained and experienced staff works hard to support all our children in learning through play. All our staff are police checked, have a certificate in First Aid and have attended a Food Safety and Hygiene course.
In our most recent Ofsted report in 2017 we achieved high standards in all areas.
We are a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance (PSLA) and, like other Pre-Schools, we are community based: drawing on and responsive to local families and needs.
We adhere to the government guidelines of promoting British values while embracing and celebrating our multi-cultural society. Some of the festivals we may celebrate throughout the year: Easter, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Diwali, Eid, Mother’s/ Father’s Day, St George’s Day.
A full list of the pre-school’s policies and procedures is always available in pre-school and copies are available on our website or on request.
We are open every day, Monday through Friday, during term time, with two sessions every day. Session times are:
|Morning:||9.00 am to 12.00 pm||Includes snack time: we offer milk or water to drink and encourage the children to sit at table for a fruit snack followed by songs. (Parents are asked to provide a piece of fruit every other session.)|
|Afternoon:||12.00 pm to 3.00 pm||Children bring their own packed lunch to eat after the registration period.|
|With the option of all day (9 am – 3pm)|
We accept children from the age of 2 years.
We try to make our admissions policy as fair as possible. Usually, we have space to take in every child on our waiting list. However, we can only have a maximum of 30 children per session.
We accept the government funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds (both the universal 15 hours and the new 30 hours for 3 and 4 year olds).
Any sessions not covered by the government funding are payable by the parent/carer at the current rate.
