Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired
by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.
We know that children are the future. We offer quality experiences to prepare children at Netherton for the future they have ahead of them. We are in touch with many early learning and childcare groups. We make links, embrace policy guidelines, exchange ideas and keep up with current educational theory and practice.
