General information, hours, etc
OFSTED registered Preschool provision for children from 3 yrs (term time).
The Preschool first opened in 2008. It is run by Nicola Plummer and Natalie Last with support from Tara Waters, Sarah Easey and Elaine Humphries; they all plan together to ensure that the children get the very best start. The activities on offer are based inside the bright and colourful classroom, as well as outside in the designated Early Years play area, and the Forest School.
The preschool has very close links to the main school, sharing all the facilities inside and out, offering free flow opportunities to the Reception/Year One class (Stara Class) which adjoins the pre-school. This includes sharing lunch with the school which prepares all our young learners for the primary phase of their education. The older pupils of Upton Cross School frequently join our children to share and help with reading and learning activities.
