Our Pre School is situated in the the school grounds in its own building. We have access to all the school facilities, including the large field, playground, wooden train and boat. We take the approach of "in the moment" planning, which means our activities and challenge for the children is implemented through the child's own choices and interests. 

We are a small Pre-School and take no more than 14 children per session.

We provide a range of activities, linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage.

From Easter 2019 all 'charged for' sessions will be recorded using ParentMail registers.  This will enable you to see which sessions you are being charged for.  All pre-booked sessions for the half term will be input at the start of that half term.

A polite reminder - all fees are payable in advance 

Persistent late payment or non-payment of fees will result in debt being passed to the Credit Control Team at Devon County Council and will result in your child's place in the setting being refused and offered to someone else.

For more information please email Jodie at the above address. Phone calls are unlikely to be taken during session time but please leave a message and we will get back to you when we can.
