At Gilbert Heathcote we aim to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children, giving them a strong foundation for their future learning. We create a safe and happy environment with motivating and enjoyable learning experiences that enable children to become confident and independent.
We ensure children’s interests are fostered and developed alongside child initiated and adult led activities that meet all aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS).
We currently provide Early Years Education for 2, 3 and 4 year old's, as well as a limited number of 30 hour funded places. Please contact Miss Kay for more information.
