About Us

When you decide to place your child into a pre-school or nursery you are, of course, making a very important decision concerning your child's future and well being.  At All Saints Wise Owls, our carefully chosen staff are selected, not just on professional qualifications (the manager is a trained teacher and Early Years Professional) but on their ability to care for your child - helping them to develop academically and socially.

We aim to give young children a variety of valuable experiences to help them to be more sensitive, capable, considerate and creative people.  These experiences include messy play, creative activities, construction, small world fun, role-playing, out of door playing and exploring the wider world.  We use the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum to plan lots of appropriate activities to ensure your child reaches their full potential in all of the following areas; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication, Language and Literacy, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy, Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Physical Development and Creative Development.
