We believe that children learn through playing, chatting and exploring their environment and resources. We believe in instilling a sense of awe and wonder in the children. We have a trained Communication Champion in our setting who can advise on speech, language and communication concerns. We promote wellbeing for babies, toddlers and their carers. Our group's run by a former teacher, an outstanding childminder and a retired childminder, all with years of knowledge and experience in early childhood. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our warm and friendly group.
