Teaching kids to count is great, but teaching them what counts is best.

Effective early learning is about opening minds and encouraging confident communication skills through the sharing of ideas. At its best, early learning is about exciting, stimulating fun and opportunities.

Our Pre-School department welcomes children aged from 2.

At Rydal Penrhos Pre-School, young children will explore, investigate and question so that they learn while their curiosity and imagination is given full reign.
