But don't take our word for it! We are currently able to offer free taster sessions for three year olds on a Thursday afternoon between 1pm and 2:15pm.

How Does Play-Based Learning Help Your Child?
Play-based learning creates a treasure-house of wonder and joy for curious young minds. Teachers take the time to observe play, children's interactions and how individuals learn; they get to know your children and therefore are able to facilitate the right next steps.
Research has shown that the benefits of attending Preschool are not just immediate as the child progresses through school but much longer lasting. The Wall Street Journal reported that "Children who went to Preschools were more likely to graduate from high-school and go on to college” and that they were, “more robust and resilient, better able to deal with the unexpected twists and turns of fate. And, ultimately, that may be the best path to success.”
