Our achievements, accreditations and current developments

Striving to be better

We are constantly looking for ways to change and improve our facilities to ensure that we provide a stimulating environment that will inspire, motivate and encourage all children.

 

We are particularly proud of the way our Forest School teaching has expanded. Much of our learning is done outside in an environment that provides endless opportunities for creativity and imagination.

 

By providing children with an assortment of activities, in which to be absorbed, the staff can assist in growing their confidence and all-important self-esteem.
 

We recognise that we do not have a monopoly on good ideas and we look to incorporate other programs and accreditations where we can. Below are our current developments and achievements over the last few years:
