Our mission is to keep children at the heart of our rural community and to provide a full range of affordable, accessible, high quality services for their care and education. Our aims are to enhance the development and education of children aged 2 years to statutory school age in a community based group involving parents; to provide a safe, secure and stimulating Pre School environment; and to work within a framework which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.
You may rest assured that your child is in the best care here with us. We are members of the Preschool Learning Alliance, ensuring we are kept up to date with training and best practice, and we also receive regular OFSTED inspections (our registration number is: EY413519).
Our most recent Ofsted report deemed our Preschool to be Good, stating that:
"Children have fun and are settled at the welcoming pre-school. They develop the skills that they need for the next stage of their learning, including the move on to school. Children demonstrate good levels of confidence, showing that they feel safe and secure. Staff play alongside children and engage them in meaningful conversations. Children use their imagination as they engage in role-play activities. They display high levels of concentration and are beginning to recognise significant numbers, such as their age. Children develop early literacy skills. Staff give children consistent guidance about the expectations for their behaviour. Children behave well and play cooperatively together. They are kind and caring to their friends."
