My two girls, who are both now in their 20's, attended St Martin's Pre-School many years ago and I have never left since! It is obvious that I thoroughly enjoy working at the Pre-School and my role helping the children to grow and develop to their best potential!

Our practitioners regularly attend training courses, to update and develop their knowledge and skills. All practitioners with key children, hold a current First Aid certificate. Disclosure and Barring Service checks are carried out on all new members of staff. All staff subscribe to the DBS Update Service, ensuring that their record is always up to date and can be checked and confirmed at any time.

A few words from a parent...

Such a fantastic Pre-School, lovely environment and nurturing staff. I am prepared to go out of my way, so that my child can attend.
