Our Values

Staff are sensitive to the individual care needs of each child. They use plenty of praise to raise their self-esteem and help them feel safe and secure within the playgroup. Children are supported very well to build excellent self-help skills…”, and “Children enjoy imaginative games, playing along side each other and developing language for communication, literacy and mathematical skills.”
