Our early years unit combines nursery and reception children. They thrive in our warm, inviting and stimulating environment. Mrs Turnbull is our EYFS lead teacher and teaches Monday - Thursday, Mrs McGregor, our head teacher, teaches EYFS on Fridays, Mrs Moffat and Miss Prior are our teaching assistants.
