Our Sessions​​

At Diddy Dinos we offer a warm, welcoming

environment and take an holistic approach to learning.

We choose weekly themes and base all crafts, toys and

games around them, incorporating the EYFS Curriculum

with the aim that children learn through play.

We have exceptional garden facilities including Pirate

ship. Playhouses, Mud kitchen, Sand pit, bikes, toys,

cars, scooters and much more.

Our rabbits and chickens are important members 

of our school and our children take great pleasure in

looking after them!

We enjoy many extra curricular activities including

visits, music and dance sessions and languages too,

and encourage parents to be involved in our day,

sharing with us any skills they have or simply coming

to play!

Our Staff

All our staff are qualified or training, first aid trained

and have a passion for childcare and learning.
