Pre-school Classes

Fun, friendly and educational classes for 2, 3 and 4 year olds to share with their parents or carers.

Launchpad sessions are run by qualified primary school teachers who are also experienced mums. 

The structured classes actively encourage children and their parents/carers to work together. 

Maths, literacy and science are taught through ‘hands on’ and interesting activities. 

Your child will be learning to communicate and develop social confidence through games, stories, songs and art activities.
