As well as being a mum of three, I have been working with children since 1994. My husband Rod and I were inspired to open our own Preschool from home back in 2006 and so with a garage/utility room and extension this became a reality when we opened our doors for the first time on the 3rd of December 2007.
Our preschool offers both Full Time and Sessional care for Children aged 2 to 5 years. We are registered for a maximum of 12 children per session.

The Staff at Mini Moo’s Preschool are carefully selected and all verified through CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) checks.
All staff hold a Level 3 qualification or are working towards this qualification. In addition to this, we may enlist the help of students who are attending college and are working towards these qualifications.
We value professional development amongst the staff which begins with a thorough induction programme. Staff are offered relevant courses when they become available, which will complement and enhance their knowledge and qualifications.
All members of staff are required to train in Paediatric First Aid and Food Safety.
At the time of registering your child, you will be required to provide emergency contact numbers in case we need to contact you regarding your child.
It is imperative that we are able to contact you on these numbers at all times so please provide numbers you know will be available throughout the day.
If your numbers change at any time you must inform us immediately so that we can update the information on your child’s records.
We have a Medical Consent Form available, view our Download Page.
