Welcome to Holy Innocents Preschool, we have two rooms, firstly in Squirrel Room, we have Ms Eldridge (Preschool Manager) with preschool assistant Mrs Patel and in Hedgehog Room we have Mrs Gregory (Preschool Assistant Manager) and preschool assistants Mrs Sharvell and Miss Powell. 

We believe it is important that you, the children's parents and Carers have the opportunity to see what they do when they are in preschool. This is just a small part of all of the exciting things we do, we try to update it weekly throughout the term we think you will enjoy sharing the journey with us and the children.
