Our fabulous outdoor play areas include; soft play surfaces where children can roll and tumble and enjoy physical play without danger of injury from falls, digging and planting areas, vegetable patch, mud kitchens and access to nature trail and playing field. We make ongoing investment in quality educational and IT equipment. We have iPads in every room which are used with adult supervision to access fun and exciting Early Years Education apps. Your child's learning is recorded on an Interactive Learning Diary which is updated weekly and which you can access online. We passionately believe in learning through play and see great levels of progress in communication and social skills across all age groups and the chidlren love our phonics and early mathematics play activities.
