"we're very lucky to have aunties like you looking after our children - thank you for everything"

"you're all amazing"

"so lucky to have you"

"just in the few weeks my child has been coming she's already starting to do things at home she's learned at pre-school"

"Just wish we'd sent him to you sooner!"

"Awesome Pre-School"

"I have been sending my kids for a few years now and they are great. The kids have so much fun learning with them and the aunties really put a lot of effort into what they do every day, there is a great emphasis on being active, I highly recommend"


We have our 'Star of the Week' for the child who has had a brilliant week in Pre-School either by displaying fabulous attitude and behaviours and following our 'golden rules' or doing super learning and showing great progress or by being a good friend and doing wonderful sharing. All our children at Pre-School are Stars in their own right but our certificate and Star of the Week pencil rewards one different child each week for their unique qualities and abilites which helps to increase their self confidence and self esteem.


We do the Daily Mile every day and once a week we recognise the child who has shone for their determination and effort and they are awarded a special medal

Engagement with Parents


We have a shared What's App group with parents where we share daily photos, links and videos of what your child gets up to, we can share these on an individual basis as well but we find most parents like it as they also get to know one another and who their child's friends are!


We have a brand new   you tube channel which is in the name of Brighter Bunnies, our proposed new name for pre-school, once the timing is right and here we share daily videos of the learning we do in pre school, bedtime stories, sing song time and our Nativity so that our children can still join in when they are at home or in the school holidays, we have had some marvellous feedback about our channel which we originally set up during the first lockdown of the Covid 19 pandemic and we had to close in March 2020. Come along and join us to see what we do!
