Brandon Pre-School

Pre-School Playgroup

At our playgroup we intend to create a secure and welcoming environment within, which each child is able to learn and play. We promote a caring attitude to others, and value each person as an individual. We consider ourselves accountable to the parents of our pupils and welcome parental involvement in the life of playschool. We aim to work towards a situation in which the children can develop self-discipline and self esteem in atmosphere of mutual respect.
