 What you Like?                                                                                                                                                      I like the way the staff interact with all the children, encourage sharing and healthy eating, lots of activities for the children to take part in. The staff are always helpful and friendly and will always take time to inform you of any changes or just how your Childs day has been. They listen to any imput of the parents and they listen to the children , the staff are very competent in the job that they do and it shows as every child that goes there comes out happy .parents are invited to meeting that the preschool has so they can have their imput.
