We provide the main activities
Elements of Development.
The Project provides both individual and group programmes , which are based on the social, emotional and educational needs of the children. Group sizes are small to allow children to develop relationships with the staff and their peers, and to meet the children’s needs. Children who find group work difficult are provided with one to one sessions, and gradually introduced to small group sessions. Staff use a child centred approach and peer learning in the groups.read more

Excursions form a vital part of a child’s early education. They expose a child to a range of different experiences and enable them to gain a sense of the world in which they find themselves.
Our children benefit from a variety of outdoor play spaces. In addition to our playground, they experience the natural wonders of the forest, the big field, our raised gardens and nature walks.
