Westbank Kidzone has offered After School Club, Holiday Club and Family Time since 2006. Following the success of those established services, we are now proud to be able to offer a Pre-school

At our Kidzone Pre-school we work closely with small groups of children, our focus is to provide tailored play-based learning experiences for each child, meeting their needs and interests. We work hard to offer high-quality education and care to all of our children and work closely with their families to support each child's learning and development at pre-school and home. At Pre-school, we strive to treat every child as an individual, meet their needs, and help them on their way to being the best they can be. We welcome every child and family into our setting regardless of race, religion, culture, ability or gender.   

Our team:

Our Kidzone team is responsible for Pre-school's day-to-day running and ensuring every child has a stimulating, fun, and enjoyable experience. 

Our Childcare Manager, Caroline Dunlop, began working as a Nursery Nurse over 18 years ago and qualified as a Primary School Teacher in 2005. She is very passionate about early years education and development. Caroline will be supported by our team of Childcare Practitioners who have obtained either Level 2 or Level 3 qualifications. We look forward to welcoming our new children and families into our setting.

All children registered at Pre-school will have a key worker who will keep parents and carers updated about their child/ren. To aid with communication with parents and carers we have registered with Tapestry, a secure online  journal which will be used to keep a record of all children’s learning and development.

Involvement of parents/carers:

We recognise that parents and carers are the experts and key educators of their children.  Therefore, we actively encourage your involvement within our Pre-school environment and welcome you to share any interests or skills with the children within a session, such as a travel experience, job, and hobbies.
