The Little Rascals Pre-School

Pre-School Playgroup
General Details

formerly known as The Methodist Pre-School

Friendly committee run Pre-school. 

 

We provide welcoming inclusive, happy, safe and stimulating environment for pre-school children to learn play and develop. Our aim is to encourage children to learn, gain confidence, self-esteem, become socially aware and to develop the ability to express themselves in an inclusive, caring and friendly environment, that promotes all round development of each individual child in our care.   

 

Children access the main hall for indoor activities and access an enclosed outdoor play area daily. We have a strong consistent team of qualified staff who are friendly and caring who help and support all children and their families. 

 

Each child will be allocated a key person who works closely with the children and their families and strive on having good relationships with our parents.
