Our Policies

In order to ensure we offer the best support to children and parents, we are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. The PSLA are a leading educational charity specialising in the early years. They provide practical support to early years settings.  


PSLA products and services include specialist publications, childcare services, quality assurance, campaigning, research, training and family programmes. They also offer a range of independent professional information, advice, support and guidance tailored to meet the needs of young children and their families, students, early years practitioners and professionals.  For more information please refer to their website: www.pre-school.org.uk


The Pre-School's policies help us to make sure that the service provided by the Pre-School is a high quality one. Copies of the Pre-School's policies are available in the lobby and are available below. If you have any queries regarding our policies please speak to the Pre-School Manager, or email coggespreschool@outlook.com
