About Us
Our philosophy is simple – Provide the highest standard of care for your child. To ensure that your child develops all the essential early life skills in a caring, stimulating environment. We believe that learning should be fun, where well designed play activities are an effective way to learn. We believe that each individual child brings their own special ability to the group, and we seek to encourage and recognise their individuality.

"I could not recommend Kingsland  enough. My little girl Laura loved it from day one. She has come on so well, not only from an academic point but socially. She was very quiet in September, now twelve months on she is constantly chatting, singing songs and has met a little circle of friends"
Kingsland is a fantastic pre-school. I feel that Jessica has learned and developed a huge amount since starting in September.
Jessica loved going to school each morning which was great to see her so happy and well
" My daughter loves coming to playschool... she comes home full of stories about all the fun things she has done"
" Truly a lovely day so much fun, and so friendly"
