Your Child is in Great Hands
We strive for a happy balance between play, academic skills and social skills, with the goal of promoting a friendly, positive first-school experience that will last a lifetime.
Our ethos is to create an environment that gives children a feeling of security and happiness whist encouraging curiosity, exploration and experimentation – the foundations of learning.
Discovery and play in the outdoors are an important part of Merry Go Round life and we’re very proud to be able to offer Forest School sessions with our own qualified Forest School Leader.
We also have a beautiful, natural garden which allows our children to enjoy the many benefits that exploration in the outdoors offers.
Provide a nurturing, child-led, supportive environment - focus on the emotional wellbeing of the children to maximise their development
Celebrate individuality - engage every child in ways that are appropriate and meaningful to them
Encourage play-based learning - supports healthy brain development, curiosity, exploration and confidence
Foster a family-like atmosphere -encourage relationships, kindness, empathy and compassion
Provide regular opportunities for learning in the outdoors - weekly forest school sessions, beach trips and outings, as well as daily use of the preschool’s natural outdoor space
Encourage involvement in the wider local community - visit other groups within the community, regular fundraisers, organised beach cleans and other community events.
