A POPULAR pre-school has opened a new branch.

Little Roos is expanding its operation with a new school in Grays Parish Hall, West Street.

Ten staff look after 50 children between the new site and at St Marys Community Hall, Little Thurrock, where Little Roos has been based for the last two years.

The pre-school offers high quality care and education for children aged two to five.

Owner Kay Hooper said: “I grew up in the area and my children attended a pre-school at the same building previously.

“I believe in working with parents to help children learn and develop, offering children and their parents a service that promotes equality and diversity.”

The school opened on January 21. The schools are open from 9.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Thursday, with a selection of play equipment for children to use and seven areas of early years learning also covered.
