About our Preschool

Calendar 2023/24

At St George’s Pre School children are encouraged to explore our play based environment both indoors and outdoors. It is through play that children learn to make sense of their world and develop socially, physically, creatively and intellectually.

Every child has a key member of staff to support and work directly with them and their parents/carers. The staff prepare and deliver a personalised plan for each child’s care, well-being and learning.
