"Children demonstrate that they are happy, feel secure and enjoy their time at the pre-school. They are motivated to explore the well-planned learning environment and make new discoveries."

We have our own self-contained premises in a residential area of Woosehill, adjacent to Hawthorns Primary School, with a large dividable indoor space and a fully enclosed outside play area. We employ 14 members of staff (10 of whom hold appropriate Early Years Qualifications) who work with the children and in support roles in a variety of sessions throughout the week.
