Windale's Mini Explorers (Two year old provision)

Currently, our two year olds provision has been withdrawn due to a drop in the number of children requesting a place. We are working closely with the Local Authority, with an aim to open our very own Two by Two at Windale in the Summer Term (delayed due to National Lockdown 3). We will update you as soon as we have more information.
