Welcome to Saplings Pre-school

We know that starting Pre-school is a very important milestone in both you and your child’s life. To ensure a positive start, you will both need the support and encouragement that a good Pre-school and wraparound care can provide so please be reassured that your child is in the care of appropriately qualified and experienced staff.

For your child, this could be the first time they have been in a large group, or been apart from you on a regular basis. Some children adapt to this very quickly, others take a little longer. Either situation is perfectly normal. You are entrusting us with the care of your child, whose safety, welfare and development is our main priorities.

We offer a secure, happy and stimulating environment where independence, self confidence, consideration for others and good manners are encouraged.
