Our Aims


  • To provide a safe, friendly and stimulating environment, where children can develop as individuals at their own pace


  • The group aims to introduce the children to a wide range of activities with the emphasis on "Learning through Play"


  • The children are encouraged to be self-confident, independent and self-expressive


  • The children are given the opportunity to interact with other children of their own age and to develop the necessary social skills in preparation for formal schooling

What do we do?

The Pre-School is registered with the Northampton Early Years Development and Child Care Partnership and provides structured activities for children aged 2 years to 5 years. The group receives funding for 3 year olds in the term after they are 3 and all 4 year olds.




"There are warm relationships between the children and practitioners, which promote children's well-being and help to develop their self-confidence. As a result, children enjoy exploring in a safe and secure environment."
