Why should my child come to The Early Birds?

The Early Birds gives children an opportunity to have a breakfast at school; eat in a social setting with other children; play with children who may be outside of their usual friendship group; and develop basic independent skills such as helping to make their own breakfast, washing and drying up their dishes.
