EYFS Framework:

We are a registered Early Years Provider who undergoes Ofsted registration and education inspection.  We follow the framework provided by the Early Years Foundation Stage. 

Our ethos of ‘Learning Through Play’ uses structured play activities to promote the development of fine and gross motor skills, the precursor to writing skills.

  • Whilst playing and communicating, children are also socialising and learning about the world around them through co-operative play. 

  • Through their creative, inquisitive play they are investigating literary, mathematical and scientific concepts at their own pace with our support.

  • Most importantly our pre-schoolers are having fun!


Our Pre-School was inspected by Ofsted May 2016 and was awarded ‘GOOD’ in all areas.

Ofsted quoted that our "Children develop confidence and self-motivation", "Teaching is good" and "Children are well prepared for the next stage of their learning".
