Our term-time pre-school is in a purpose built dedicated space, a pleasant clean environment, new wooden floor, allocated toilet area, library, has CCTV, and all the security our nursery has.
Your child is never alone with our 1:8 ratio of children to staff. Pre-school is great preparation for school as your child learns through play, helps them to build relationships and improves their communication skills

Choking 05/06/2021

Choking

From the 7th June it’s Child Safety Week. The Child Accident Prevention Trust has some great information on multiple topics to help keep your child safe.

Their page on choking is an interesting read, for example, did you know babies and young children haven’t learnt how to chew, swallow and breathe in the right order? They sometimes get them mixed up, and that can cause choking.

To find out more, click on the link below.

Choking Each day around 40 under-5s are rushed to hospital after choking on something, or swallowing something dangerous. Be particularly aware of sweet items such as mini eggs around Easter time - these are exactly the same size as a toddler's airway.
