We accommodate for children aged 2 years up to school leaving and this works really well, we are rolling out stay and play sessions from Feb 2020 (these will continue when it is safe to do so) and will aim at these once a month with a focus on certain areas of development linking this in with celebrations. We believe in good positive, parent and practitioners relationships enable our children to thrive to their best of their ability, and we welcome any information and ideas from our parents and carers.
