Our Pre-school is a happy, caring and nurturing environment which engages children and parents in the child’s learning. We cater for children aged 2 – 5 years.
Our staff provide quality learning, with atttention to the child’s individual needs and understanding. We maintain a good adult to child ratio, which enables the child to have one-to-one attention.
