Children learn to enhance their social skills by interacting with their peers and to develop their confidence and sense of responsibility. An exciting range of outdoor equipment encourages physical activity and helps to develop co-operation. Children are carefully supervised during playtime to ensure their safety.
WE HAVE AN INDOOR, AIRCONDITIONED PLAY AREA FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS.
