Our aims & values

Our aim is to prepare your child both socially and educationally for primary school, and hope that when the time comes they will join their new school with confidence.

We create a stimulating environment where children are able to gain language for communication and thinking and use their skills to find solutions to problems tackle new challenges and increase their sustained shared thinking.  To this end we employ both highly motivated and qualified staff.

The children have opportunities to explore and learn through play and first hand experiences and take risks within a safe environment. We provide a wide range of activities including Montessori equipment.

We value the children as individuals, welcoming their ideas and involvement in the setting, allowing them to learn at their own pace to reach their full potential.  In order to achieve this we continually monitor the children’s progress through observation. We also acknowledge that each child brings their own unique contributions and experiences to the setting.  We encourage this in a variety of ways including bringing in special items from home and singing solos at music time.  We also have two resident bears who like to spend weekends at home with the children which provides a further link with home. 


We operate a key person system to ensure that no child is overlooked. The key person works closely with the children building up a relationship with them and getting to know each child’s interests and characteristics.  They also liaise with the main carers and keep the children’s records up to date which are sent home regularly. However, we work closely as a team therefore all staff build good relationships with all the children in our care.


Our sessions allow for plenty of free play, and yet have a definite structure to them. We have a theme each half term, and we link this into the Early Years Foundation Stage. We do have a small group activity each day that links in with the Goverment Letters and Sounds programme. We focus on listening, rhyming, storytelling, phonics and also do some maths work. We cook quite often with the children, and have daily P.E., music and story sessions. Linked to our P.E. we also have a Sports day in the summer. We endeavour to access the outdoor area wherever possible; as well as using our designated outdoor area we also use the wooded and grass areas which give the children opportunities to discover the wonderful world of nature. The children are of course kept safe and supervised while outside.
Healthy snacks are provided: bread, fruit and milk or water. These are shared socially around a table with both adults and children.
From time to time we do have visits from various people within the community, i.e. Police, Fire Brigade, Dental Nurses, Vets, Librarians and others.

For children not yet old enough to receive the Free Early Education entitlement the fees are currently £20:00 per session and are payable in advance half termly. You are able to use Tax Free Childcare or Childcare Vouchers to make your payment.

Children living within the Borough of Bromley are currently eligible for Free Early  Education entitlement at the start of the term after their third birthday. Funding is also available for some 2 year olds. This pays for up to 5 3 hour sessions per week for 38 weeks a year. For the extra 15 minutes per session we charge £4:75.

The extended sessions are charged at £13:00 and extended entitlement funding  can be used for 2 hours in each afternoon session and again there is an additional charge for the extra 15 minutes.

If for any reason you need to withdraw your child from Pals then 6 academic weeks notice are required. Failure to give such notice will result in 6 weeks fees being due in lieu of notice.
