Our Ethos

We are very proud of our village Pre-School and we work hard to ensure our children enjoy a safe, nurturing home from home environment where they have freedom and safety.

We promote the characteristics of effective learning as we strongly believe they are the basis for our children to become life long learners with engagement, critical thinking, motivation and independence.

We believe that every child is unique, and we support each child’s individual needs by taking the time to really get to know them.

We provide fun, stimulating activities to enhance and promote our children’s learning experiences, unlocking their full potential and preparing them for school.
