General Information

Children are asked not to bring their own toys into sessions unless they are a comforter or are asked to do so for a project. Toys so often get lost or broken, this in turn can cause upset to all children involved.

In order to feel free to experiment with all kinds of materials, including messy ones, it is best to send children in clothes that are easily washed or not too new. Although we do provide aprons, we cannot guarantee that your child will remain spotless.

It is good for children to practice the skills that will make them independent. Simple clothing which they can handle themselves will enable them to go to the toilet when they want to and to put on and take off their outdoor clothes without being dependant on others for help.

We encourage you to add comments to your child’s communication book about their development at home. Sharing information is really important, this ensures we all get a complete picture of your child, their interests, development and learning needs.

Our pre-school has a wonderful outdoor space for your children to explore. They will be able to run, climb and play and even get their hands muddy by planting, nurturing and growing flowers, fruit and vegetables.
