Hello and welcome to Beech.

Children learn through a mixture of focused adult-led activities and child-initiated activities within our classroom learning areas.

Each area has targets for the children to work at and develop their own skills.

We hope that your child enjoys their time with us and we look forward to working alongside you as they learn and develop.
