Whatever you’ve got your sights set on, that’s merely the beginning. As a Gator you’ll learn to see beyond the horizon.
All pupils learn in different ways; so our curriculum planning incorporates a variety of teaching styles and techniques and includes open ended activities, which encourage all children to start from their own level and to achieve their full potential. We endeavor to take account of individual needs and build on pupils’ own skills and experiences in order for them to achieve their full potential.
We want children to feel safe, stimulated and happy at The Sherkids and to feel secureand comfortable with staff. We also want parents to have confidence in both their children’s well being and their role as active partners with Sherkids.
