"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

About Us

Thank you for visiting our Pre-school website. As a parent/carer you will want to choose the pre-school that you think will be best for your child. We hope that you enjoy looking at the different pages of our website and are able to find all the information you are looking for. We are always happy to talk to you about any questions you may have.

Our Pre School provides a safe, vibrant and exciting curriculum for children between the ages of 2 - 5 years. Our location in the school grounds enables us to share the excellent facilities of the Primary School and provides good opportunities for children to become familiar with the school and staff prior to transition.


Our Aim is to:

  • Provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment.
  • Enable all the children to learn through play and develop as individuals in order to progress and flourish at their own pace.
  • Provide high quality care and education of children below statutory school age in a parent-involving, community based group.
  • Work in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop.
  • Add to the life and well-being of the local community.
  • Work within a framework which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.


The Session:

We believe that care and education and equally important in the experience that we offer children. We provide activities that:


  • Ensure that each child feels that they are a special member of our setting.
  • Ensure the safety of each child.
  • Develop their social skills as they play and learn alongside other children.
  • Provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning.
  • Contribute to the child's health and physical development by making use of our lovely outdoor area and holding weekly "Welly Wednesday" sessions.



Our staff are highly experienced and have been selected for their child-centred approach, providing a very caring and secure environment. All staff in school regularly participate in training relating to child protection and follow the procedures set out in our Safeguarding Policy when dealing with any concerns.


The Designated Safeguarding Lead for our Pre-school is Mrs Julie Evans, Pre-school Manager.
