Welcome to Nursery Room: Seahorses
We offer a very warm welcome to our new children who will be starting with us this term. And also say 'Welcome back' to our existing children - we've missed you!
Below are a few photos of the Seahorse Room because we know how hard it is for parents to leave their children at the door.
