All our staff are highly qualified and experienced early years professionals, undertaking regular training to enhance the children's learning and development and they have been vetted to ensure their suitability to work in our setting. Our priority at Preschool and Out of School club is to create a fun,happy and nurturing environment for everyone that attends.
As a charity, we are very proud to offer affordable childcare of the highest quality. We are an inclusive setting that aims to create a positive learning experience for all children to help them grow and develop whilst feeling supported at all times.
We strive to ensure that our parents feel involved in their child's learning and by working in partnership together this is achieved in several ways. Tapestry is our online learning and communication tool that parents can access. We have an open door policy at our setting which means that parents can speak to us when required. We also have two open evenings each year to allow parents to talk to their child's key worker and look at their children's work.
We offer Preschool sessions for children aged 2-5 and Wrap around care in our Acorns Out of School Club from 7:30am - 6pm for children aged 2-11.
We also run a holiday club from our very large setting during all school holidays with the exception of Christmas.
