Little Skippers, our foundation stage unit is fully integrated. This means that the children can move freely between our exceptionally well resourced rooms, shared creative area, café and outdoor play area making choices and learning to regulate their responses and behaviour. We provide a safe, secure and supervised unit supported by a large team of qualified and experienced early years educators including four teachers.

The unit enables children and parents to transfer from Little Tiddlers two year old provision and our nursery into our reception year seamlessly. Children are encouraged to take part in groups, explore ideas, explain their thinking while developing increasing levels of confidence and independence.
