***WE ARE OPEN TODAY AT 9AM (2nd March)***

We will be opening as usual this morning at 9am however if the snow that is forecast does arrive we may have to close early to allow staff to travel home safely. Sarah and I have done our best to treat the approach and car park at Playschool but it is still icy in places so please do enter with caution. Please only make the journey if you feel safe to do so, thank you to those who have already emailed to say you will not be coming in today. Thanking you again for your understanding while we do our best during these extreme conditions.

Our setting is one of only a few in the local area accepting children from the age of 2.

We follow the current EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) guidelines and are proud to report our most recent Ofsted inspection was GOOD – with Outstanding aspects.
