Our pre-school was established in 1976 in the village of High Littleton and operates out of The Methodist Centre. We are a term time only setting and we open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 9am - 3pm and Thursday 9am-12pm. We take children from 2 years old to primary school age.


We are a play-based setting and believe that children learn and thrive through play.


Our aims are to:

  • provide a child-friendly environment that is safe, secure, caring and stimulating and to enhance the development and education of children through play;

  • encourage children to develop self-confidence and self-esteem and to feel valued as an individual and promote children's social, intellectual and physical development through play and structured activities, preparing them for a smooth transition from pre-school to school;

  • regularly observe and plan for each child's progress;

  • honour parent's trust that we will nurture their child and give them quality care;

  • work within the guidelines of the Early Years Foundation Stage and follow the guidelines and requirements of the registering bodies;

  • work as partners with parents/carers and offer flexibility that allows each child's individual needs to be met;

  • make parents/carers feel welcome and provide an atmosphere where both children and adults feel happy and comfortable;

  • ensure opportunities for all children whatever their race, culture, religion, means or ability and promote their health and wellbeing;


Educational research clearly demonstrates that high-quality early years education benefits children by enhancing their all-round cognitive, language and social development.
