our activities

A variety of balanced, stimulating activities help develop your child’s individual skills and encourage social integration by learning through play, which will help their transition to school.

We incorporate ECAT (every child a talker) in our setting, which is a scheme developing speech and language skills for children.

Parent Sessions

These are held weekly for our parents to stay and join in with activities with their children.  Including craft, stories, singing, musical instruments and outdoor games.

The dates for parent sessions are always advertised on the parent notice board, Half termly newlsetters and on Tapestry.

We are OFSTED inspected and part of the Nursery Education Funding Scheme. We are also registered to take funded 2 year old children.
