Our main aim at Growing Minds Pre-School, is to foster happy and independent children who thrive in an environment which is fun, caring and full of new and exciting challenges and experiences. The children are given opportunities for both indoor and outdoor learning, with activities being planned to stimulate their senses and learning styles.

Preparation for the children’s education is thorough and each timetable offers a balance of structured play and a focused emphasis on all aspects of the early years developmental stages.

Our qualified teachers carefully plan every day; to ensure that the children are offered both child initiated and teacher led activities in order to enable all of the children to achieve their full potential.

Specialist teachers teach Music and Physical Education and there is help available from a Learning Specialist for any child who requires additional support or a gifted & talented program.

Growing Minds offers a happy, homely and vibrant atmosphere with an emphasis on forging strong home/school links, to ensure the children make a confident and happy start to their education. Parents are welcomed into school and we very much operate an Open Door policy. Our resident Psychologist communicates daily with parents.

There are opportunities to discuss your child’s progress with their teachers at our twice-yearly parent – teacher conferences that take place in both the winter and spring terms. We understand how important it is for parents to receive regular feedback on how well their child is doing at school and so in addition to these evenings, reports are also written twice a year. Furthermore we post frequently photographs and videos on our class what’s up groups.
