Other notes

We first opened in January 2005 in Shaftesbury Road, Romford then opened a second preschool in Harold Wood in September 2006. We attained the Basic Skills Quality Mark and because of our good Ofsted rating and experience we were one of the first settings to be involved in the Havering two year pilot offer.

Due to the education authorities decision to close Manor Primary School we had to close in Romford in July 2009. Harold Wood continued to operate but in July 20012 due to the rising numbers of school places and classrooms needed by the school we were forced to close. We opened here in November 2012.

We have opened our second group in Harold Wood September 2014.
