Our Pre-School staff are a caring and close knit team who have many years' experience working with young children. They are all highly qualified and have a great skill-set to ensure all the children who attend the Pre-School have their developmental needs met.


All the staff have been assessed by Ofsted and have passed enhanced checks with the Disclosure Baring Service, are epi-pen trained and have completed paediatric first aid training.


Each child that attends the Pre-School will be assigned a key person, who will work with them, help them to settle in, make friends, assess their needs and progress, meet with parents and help with daily activities.
