There is a national Curriculum for early years. Its philosophy is based on play as the vehicle for learning with the child as an active learner, developing the skills and concepts needed for living in a multi cultural society. We promote equal opportunity for every child regardless of gender, ethnic grouping or disability.

Parents are valued for their role in this educational partnership and respected as First and Continuing educators of their children.

We follow the curriculum for excellance and the pre birth to three matters

We actively promote the processes of learning, the abilities to communicate, persevere, organise and investigate.
