We aim to run regular coffee mornings/afternoons for our parents/grandparents/carers where we provided support for our families when they need it and a chance to meet new parents and the staff in a relaxed atmosphere. We encourage all parents to be involved in giving their own ideas as to how we can improve/progress the pre school further.
We welcome any input or suggestions from our families; please do not hesitate to pass your comments or feedback to our staff.
