Open Day

We are having an Open Day on Saturday 24th June from 1pm until 3.30 p.m.  Please can you tell your friends/family, who have pre-school aged children, so that they can bring their children along to meet us.

They will be able to visit our pre-school and experience what we can offer in the way of facilities and activities; meet our staff and ask as many questions as they like.

We would be happy to see as many people as possible so you and your children are more than welcome to accompany your friends, if you wish.
