Catkins Preschool Mission

We believe that children thrive in an environment which values their own uniqueness, while providing support and opportunities to grow emotionally, socially and creatively. By building on each child’s strengths, interests and curiosities, we guide each child to explore the world around them as well as develop new abilities and form close relationships.
We are an Ofsted approved setting and work closely with our settings improvements manager to ensure we are consistently exceeding expectations.
