The Honey Bee Preschool

We are a welcoming multicultral setting that is open for the whole community. We provide a warm yet fun and stimulating environment where each child is supported to achieve to their full potential. We offer a high adult to child ratio, mature, qualified and multi-lingual staff. We provide themed activities to promote children's learning and development following the early years foundation stage curriculum covering the six areas of learning. Our small outside space is used in a creative way to enhance children's learning. Outdoor learning is very important to us and we take children to the park, community garden and library on a weekly basis. Organic fruits/veg snack with milk/water are offered to all children.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
