St. Catherine's Pre-school is a successful, community run pre-school which has been running since 1966. We are Ofsted inspected and registered to deliver the EYFS, following a legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning success. It sets out the legal welfare requirements, determines assessments that tell you about your child's progress, and provides details of expected levels that your child should reach by the time they are age 5. We believe children develop quickly in the early years and we do all we can as practitioners to ensure they have the best possible start in life. We provide a caring environment full of rich and fulfilling experiences which help them develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture and religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities and gender. At each session we can have up to a maximum of 26 children and we have an excellent staff to child ratio of 1:8.
