Ravenside Pre-School is a registered charity and has been providing sessional care since 1976. It is based at St James and St Basil's church hall, Fenham. The group has the sole use of the premises during its opening hours and the children have access to a large open plan hall and an enclosed grassed area for outdoor play.
Our philosophy is to promote a positive relationship with parents/carers and work in partnership with them to provide high quality play, care and learning for their children.
We have a team of experienced staff. Their training is updated on a regular basis and they hold all the relevant qualifications for their roles.
