As a small community pre-school, we have a high-level of qualified practitioners with a wealth of experience looking after the village children. We are extremely proud of our setting, particularly our SENCO department.  These factors have a positive impact on our children when transitioning into Reception Years.

The breakfast and after school club team are amazing, they always take the time to find out what Chase is interested in and provide him with activities he likes, this has really helped him to settle in and gain confidence in his social skills.
