Coronavirus Support

Setting is open to offer childcare places to children of key workers and for vulnerable children.

General Details

We are extremely proud of the first class facilities we can offer, including a wonderful outside play area comprising a pirate ship play structure and lovely children's planting and insect garden. We have recently added a wonderful new play kitchen. Pathways is a setting where every child is valued. Staff are trained to a high standard. We provide a pre-school that follows the Early Years Foundation Stage and seek to plan for each individual child's interests and needs, through play.
