Hi, my name is Hendrene Mintchev
I have owned this school since 1999 with great success and satisfaction. 
We believe in continual improvement and our school is regularly acquiring new equipment and books. Our staff are well qualified and highly experienced, and our excellent adult child ratio of 1:5 ensures that the children receive the attention they deserve. Our driving aim is to provide the very best for our children, and this remains to be the focus for everything we do.
Nursery schools are ideal places to make friends and develop relationships with both children and adults. This special social environment is designed to be friendly and fun and involves working together, sharing ideas and experiences. Development of social skills is a major part of our programme, and by following a thematic approach to the curriculum the children are given the opportunity for plenty of social interaction.

language development: To enhance language development the children enjoy regular group games, story time, and speaking and listening activities. The thematic approach teaches the children lots of new vocabulary, and learning the alphabet is made exciting and fun by using the Letterland Method.

gross motor skills: The school has a large outdoor play area with lots of large toys, including cars and bicycles. The children enjoy activities involving hoops, balls, climbing, and general PE games.

mathematics: Counting skills, number recognition and measurement are developed with group based activities and the use of practical apparatus.

it skills: Our class has its own computer, and we have a great range of fun packed, educational programmes. The children initially learn to control the mouse, and then progress onto more advanced activities. 

arts & crafts: Activities include painting, printing, modeling, cutting, sticking, collage, and theme based craft work.

drama & music: 
The children take part in dressing-up,  music appreciation, singing, and the use of musical instruments. We particularly enjoy the weekly visit from our ballet teacher.
