Children starting school? Our Early Years is rated 'Good'

“ I am so impressed with the nursery and the way they have kept me informed with my daughters progress as well as the way they have engaged with me and allowed me to participate in my daughter's learning and development. I have attended numerous stay and play events and the term time updates have been invaluable by enabling me to understand how she is doing and allowing me to build upon that at home. I would recommend the school to anyone.”
