We run regular tours for parents to view our Early Year provision. This will give you an opportunity to meet staff, see the provision in action and ask any questions you may have.
To book a tour, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0300 065 8230. If there is a lot of interest over a short period of time, we may offer group tours.
