In January 2017 we are expanding our provision to include a Preschool. The Preschool will initially be based at The Welcome Church in Heathfield. We hope that we will be successful with the funding bids that we have in place to eventually have our own Preschool building on our site. In the mean time and responding to parental concern we have decided to establish our own Preschool at The Welcome Church.

Our Preschool will become an extension to our current school and will be staffed by a qualified teacher. This will ensure we have quality learning provision in place.

Although based at The Welcome Church our Preschool will be able to make use of our school facilities which include: playing field, school hall, forest school, school farm, library and computer room.

Our aim:  

We aim to help each child learn and develop to their full potential within a safe, stimulating and caring environment.  We offer children a fun time where friendships can flourish and where the children are happy and contented. Learning takes place within child-centred activities, where continuous provision offers freedom of choice, individual expression, exploration and discovery, and where the creative thinking and emotional development of children is the basis of what we do.
