What sets us apart from other preschool programs:
Our teaching programmes are developed to suit individual children’s needs. We are well resourced with equipment, toys, games, books, music etc which are regularly updated to reflect current standards. Many parents comment on the warm homely environment which encourages their children to play and learn cooperatively not competitively and to show respect and care for each other.
On Thursday/Friday we have a special “Readiness for School” programme for those children going to “big school” the next year. There are also opportunities for parents to be involved in the running of the Preschool via a “parent group” which also has representatives on the Management Committee.
