Kindergarten is our Early Years provision for under three year olds. Children can be accommodated in our Willow Room (Baby Room) from three months old and stay in there usually until they are almost two years old. Their stage of development determines when they move from Willow Room into Maple Room which caters for two and three year olds.
Recent research highlights the importance of these very early years of life; it is vital that babies and toddlers form strong relationships with their important adults and that our key worker systems reinforce this.
It is equally key that very young children have the opportunities and experiences they need to grow and develop in a supported environment. Our staff are well qualified and experienced in ensuring that children's emotional, cognitive and physical developments are met.
We are open from 7.45am to 5.15pm all year round. We are closed for Bank Holidays, for one week at Easter, for the last two weeks in August and for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. Please check the calendar section of the website for future closures.
