As children reach the age of two their personalities are rapidly developing and our staff team are ready to meet their individual needs. Our knowledgeable educators provide a safe base for our children to explore the challenge of independence.
Our well-qualified teachers lead the learning for our older children. At this stage we know that children learn best when they are fully immersed in their education. Our teachers introduce project based learning that the children have planned themselves through their own interests and enquiries.
Our experienced teachers work closely with local primary schools and understand the importance of school readiness. At Go Outdoors we raise independent and capable learners who are ready to take on the next challenge.
Once settled we will ensure that the whole staff team understand your child and can assure you that they will always receive the same care and professional love throughout their learning journey with us.
Your child will also have their own key person based on a natural bond they develop with an individual member of the team. This strong attachment will help your child to settle and provide a first point of contact for your family. The Key Person will observe your child’s progress and provide you with regular updates on their development.
