The Quinta Preschool
We are pleased to announce that from September 2019 The Quinta Primary School will be offering early years provision from 2.5 - 4 year olds in a preschool setting.
Our aim is to develop a love of learning within every young mind that attends The Quinta and provide a nurturing, highly skilled environment that allows our youngsters to begin primary education with excellent knowledge and confidence.
To be a provider renowned for delivering everyday excellent practice in a kind and caring environment that allows every child to explore themselves and discover who they are through the widest range of opportunities.
Our promise is that every child and family that attends Quinta Preschool will:
Have a personal history that makes them the individuals they are. We respect this, embrace it and will ensure we make every effort to understand and support you in getting the best possible start to your child's education, whatever the journey so far.
