This busy Pre-School delivers high quality care and education by skilled and qualified practitioners with a high ratio of adults to children.
As a Charitable Organisation we do expect all families to support our ongoing fund raising events organised by the Parent’s Committee. There are lots of opportunities for parents to become involved in the life of Pre-School.
