At Kingsdown and Ringwould, we strongly believe that children in the Foundation Stage learn best through first-hand experience and structured play activities. To your child, play is their "work" and we value it as such.
Our aim is to provide a happy and welcoming atmosphere in a secure and stimulating environment. With these principles in mind your child can develop in confidence, make personal, social and academic progress, working towards becoming an independent learner.
Our aim is that all children here should be happy and successful with us. Our school is the perfect place for your child to start their education.
