Local Offer


We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life.  We follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage which is a tailor made curriculum for children from birth to five years.  The practitioners use their skills to create a learning rich environment where the individual needs of the children are of paramount importance.  The practitioners can access additional support, adapt activities and environments to make each day exciting and allow each child to reach their full potential.
