who nurture and encourage the children, sharing the ethos that ‘Every Child Matters’.
Meet Our Teachers
Walk into your child’s preschool classrooms and you will find a large, inspiring room divided into carefully planned interest areas. It will be filled with engaging ideas and a variety of materials for your child to manipulate, explore, play with, and share.
The rooms are especially designed to encourage your child’s natural curiosity and desire to learn about their world and engage with their peers.
Indoor & Outdoor Play Areas
All children and young people have the right to play and need to play: free to choose what they do – lively or relaxed, noisy or quiet – with the chance to stretch and challenge themselves, take risks and enjoy freedom.
The right to play is enshrined in Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. (Play England Charter for children’s Play)
What The Parents Say
‘Also really like using the Tapestry online journal. It’s so lovely to see what she is getting up to and her progress. Thank you for providing such a lovely, fun, safe and happy environment for my daughter.’
‘We are so happy with Barbara Rose. Being my first child, I felt a little nervous, letting her go into the big world without me there. I have felt so at ease and comfortable knowing she is so happy there and looks forward to going.’
Staff are incredible and should get credit for how amazing they are! The settling in day is perfect to enable the transition.
He loves telling me that he has been dancing and playing outside. He has been singing a lot too. He was reluctant at first to be separated from me. But the support we both received was so amazing, all the staff were incredible during this stressful time.
My daughter loves when the climbing frame is out. She tells me what she has learned and done during the day and is a happy child when collected.
