Pre-school stay and play sessions

We run stay and play sessions every week. This gives all parents/carers the opportunity to attend one or more sessions. At Valley road we recognise the importance of involving parents in their child’s learning and development. Parents are their childs first educators and it is crucial that we work together to ensure every child achieves their full potential. This time is a great opportunity for parents to experience what we offer the children and observe the value of play!
