It started in the Bapist Church in Barnstaple. Here we found a shared Christian ethos with Our Lady's School that puts the love of Christ at it's heart. Working together in community produces the bestresults for our children. Parents are valued as children's and most enduring carers and educators. All children and families are unique and our educational programme fits each child's stage and interests. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, closely monitoring children's progress from the start.
We are highly qualified and have a clear understanding of the need for families to have full trust and confidence in the people who are looking after their children. Knowing their children are safeand having fun. We fulfil all these requirements with in all our childcare services.
