Physical Exercise

When the weather is good we don’t miss an opportunity for some outside exercise as well, and this is when our external grass and play areas come into their own.

Creativity and Development

Our working philosophy is that all we do should encourage the social, physical, emotional and intellectual well-being of the children who attend. Fun activities and creative play are central to this programme and to the on-going development of the children.

Responsibility

Our qualified care staff organise activities according to age and development stage, encourage group involvement, and are highly tuned to the needs of the children. Homework supervision, tidy up time, and an emphasis on caring for equipment instill a sense of responsibility, and help to prepare your child for their future school life.
