Welcome To Fynamore!


We are very pleased that you are considering choosing our school as the next step in your child's journey.


Starting school is an exciting time for parents and children alike (albeit a little daunting at times, as well).  Our hope is to make this transition as smooth as possible and support your child as they begin school life.
