The Staff

Here are our wonderful Staff who run the sessions at Pre-School.

Our staff are all experienced in Pre-School practice and first aid, and regularly attend extra courses to keep their skills up to date. We are proud of having attracted highly skilled, dedicated staff who typically stay with us for many years.

In addition, we have a parent helper rota so that parents can join sessions, helping out with activities and seeing what we do firsthand.
