Our Aim: 

We aim to work in partnership with our parents through the structure of our key worker development programme. This programme enables each staff member to monitor carefully the development of children within their care, by completing individual learning journals for children and liaising on a regular basis with parents. This encourages each child to progress to his or her full potential in a warm, secure and caring environment.
