Educational Schemes

Kids Kottage are proud to take part in the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) scheme. This scheme allows children to receive a free pre-school year of programme-based activities designed to prepare them for the move on to primary school.

Pre-School

Kids Kottage have a pre-school service available for children from the ages of 3 till 5 and for toddler groups aged 2 to 3. Early childhood is an ideal time for learning and development which we encourage through an active, stimulating environment. We understand that each child is unique and work to encourage their individual strengths and interests. Children receive regular one-on-one contact in order to build strong relationships between themselves and our team members. Our pre-school service runs 38 weeks of the year in conjunction with local primary schools.
