Founded in 1982, we are a rural community- based group offering pre-school education and play opportunities to children from 2½ to 5 years of age.
We run the group in West Buckland Village Hall during term time on three days a week
Monday 9am – 2.45pm, Tuesday 9am -12.30* and Friday 9am – 2.45pm.
Through their attendance we aim to help the children continue their development started by their parents/carers, encourage independence and help prepare them for full-time education.
The Village Hall backs on to a safe playing field and open countryside. We aim to use our outdoor space as much as possible throughout the year and enjoy exploring the countryside and plan lots of outdoor activities.
The pre-school management is overseen by a small committee of parents/carers. Day to day management and running falls to our dedicated staff members.
We offer a competitive hourly rate and government funded places for 3 and 4 year olds.
Please come along and see us in action.
*An afternoon session is available for children rising 5 (who will be attending primary school in the following year)
