Our Pre-school provides a harmonious, fun and inclusive learning community, where all the children are encouraged to establish friendships and explore and learn through free play.
It is our expectation that each child will grow in confidence and independence before their transition to school.
We work in partnership with parents and actively encourage them to become involved in all aspects in the life of our Pre-school.
