Learning through play

At cherub nurseries and pre-schools all resources and activities are designed to maximise the opportunities for \'learning through play\'.  Our goal is to encourage and support children of all ages to reach their full potential.  Meeting their needs from a very young age will greatly promote understanding and enjoyment of learning throughout the years to come.

Each day your child\'s activities have been specifically planned and organised to ensure they are appropriate and specific to each age group. Your child will only progress to the next stage when they are ready and when this has been discussed with you, and you are happy with this decision.

We follow an education programme which is called early years foundation stage (EYFS) that ensures your child receives the best possible start on their road to learning in a stimulating and encouraging setting.

Relax, your child is receiving the very best of care.
