Pre-School Ethos

Our knowledge of how children learn is exceptional. We passionately believe in and deliver a creative curriculum which builds children’s social and emotional resilience, draws upon the latest research in brain development and recognises the importance of strong relationships with parents, families and pre-school staff.


To fulfil our aim of creating successful children who engage better in their learning and gain skills for future successes in society we have adopted a wonderful approach known as Thrive. 

Within Thrive we advocate children’s sense of ‘Being’ through making sure children feel and are safe, and build wonderfully, playful, accepting and curious attachments with their key workers and other adults in the setting. Children make outstanding progress as key workers initially assess children’s staring point and then continually assess children’s progress, charting progress through highly personalised care. Our pre-school specialises in multi-sensory open–ended play opportunities. Once a week Pre-School children skip, stamp or plod off to our on-site Forest School with our trained Forest School Leader.

We recognise parents are children’s first and main educators. As such, we involve them in every step of their child’s learning and progress. This helps us to build comprehensive knowledge of each unique child and their families. Parents know what their child is learning as they receive regular website updates, daily notes in communication books including photos of their child in action in Pre-School.

We welcome visits to our Pre-School, although we do ask that you phone the school on 01299 871803 or e-mail the office This email address is being protected from spambots.
