Aim Of The Group

We aim to provide a happy environment in which children may play together regularly with materials suited to their needs, which will enable them to meet the Early Learning Goals.


We offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities to help children reach their full potential. We encourage children to share experiences with each other in order to build on social skills and to develop independence from adults. Each term we organise at least one group outing, which includes parents / carers.


We offer a full range of equipment from traditional toys, dolls and trains that encourage imaginative play, to technological toys and computers that help children become familiar with the skills of the modern world.
