Mission Statement

The Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS, DfE 2014) has recognised that “Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential.”

Therefore at The Cherries we aim to meet the individual needs of all children through positive relationships with qualified, experienced early years educators.  We are continually striving towards creating a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment where children are encouraged to learn through play, develop confidence and reach their individual potential.
