Our Mission Statement
Marsh Gibbon Pre-School welcomes all children along with their parents/carers. We include and cater for all ethnicities, cultures or religions, home languages, social and economic backgrounds, learning difficulties or disabilities, genders or abilities. We encourage parents/carers to be fully involved in their education. We believe that children should grow, learn and develop in a stimulating, friendly, caring and safe environment where each child is treated as an individual, being supported and praised for their efforts, not just their results.
Our Aims and Objectives
- To create a warm, friendly environment where children can play, learn and discover. Recognising the individuality of each child and their personal learning needs.
- To help each child become enquiring, self-thinking, self-motivated independent individuals, thus easing the transition to school.
