We're very excited to announce that...
From September 2017, we are increasing the number of hours that our pre-school operates, enabling parents to take advantage of the Governments 30-hour childcare vouchers.
The teacher-led pre-school, will be accommodated within our EYFS/KS1 classroom, where children will engage in practical, hands-on, learning opportunities supported by highly trained and experienced staff.
