At Daisy Day we give each child the opportunity for achievement and successful learning. Our provision supports and nurtures the children’s early development, stimulating curiosity and fostering good language, communication and social skills.
Our broad and well-balanced pre-school provision for 3 and 4 year olds (Sunflower Group) is designed to challenge the children and encourage them to develop into motivated learners and thinkers, equipping them with the skills to help them make the important transition from nursery to school. We also place great emphasis on developing the children’s personal and social skills, building their confidence and self esteem.
