ABOUT US

Welcome to Early Learners, a very caring and happy place where every child matters.

 Owned and run by Mrs. Yvonne Gribben, a fully qualified British primary teacher, 

we offer the highest quality of care and education. 

We welcome children aged between approximately 12 months and 4+ years into :

  •       The Smarties class, for our youngest children, from 12 months to 2 years

  •       The Bright Buttons & Clever Cats classes for ages 2.5 to 3.5 years

  •     The Superstars class for Nursery/KG1 children who will move on to 'big school' at the end of the school  year after their fourth birthday.  

            We are a small school and we are proud of the loving and supportive atmosphere we have created, where children thrive as they develop emotionally and socially as well as academically.  Committed to all our children reaching their full potential, we have rigorous planning and assessment procedures but they are delivered in a nurturing environment which fosters confidence and independent thought. 

 

We were delighted to be awarded grades of 'outstanding' in all five of the categories assessed by the 

Quality Assurance Authority for Education & Training. 

The Schools Review Inspection Unit Report paid tribute to :

  • the dedication, creativity and team work of our amazing staff
  • the commitment of our wonderful parents who took the time to complete questionnaires and to talk to the inspection team
  • our talented, original and inspiring children.
