Charlwood Pre-School

Where children love to learn and play

A day in the Life of Charlwood Pre-School…..

Nothing is more important to us at Charlwood Pre-school than ensuring your child settles in quickly and easily to life with us.  Parents/Carers are invited to stay with their child during the first session your child has with us and further sessions until you are happy they have settled.

Each child is assigned a Key Person, this particular member of staff will be there to make sure your child is happy and settled.  The key person will then keep records on your child’s development and a scrap book of their achievements.
