What does your service do?

At Carisbrooke Preschool, we work with parents to provide and safe and enjoyable experience for the children. Observations and records are taken of the children on a regular basis, for us to keep up-to-date records of the children's next steps. We ensure a safe, happy environment, in accordance with health and safety regulations, and social service guidelines.
