Chestnuts Preschool

We are excited and delighted to announce that we will be opening our very own pre-school (for three and four olds) in September 2022. The pre-school will be an integral part of Chestnuts and will support all children at the beginning of their learning journey.   

We look forward to welcoming children to our pre-school in the term after their third birthday.  We will be offering morning or afternoon sessions. There is also the option of attending all day for those in receipt of the government 30-hour funding, for those in receipt of 15-hour funding there will be the opportunity to pay for additional sessions. We can also offer wrap around care in the form of a breakfast club and after school club for an additional fee.

At Chestnuts we recognise that children engage with other people and their environment through playing, exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. These characteristics underpin learning and development across all areas of the curriculum and support the individual child to remain an effective and motivated learner. We value that all children are unique and that they learn at different times and in different ways. We also value the importance of following the children’s own interests and learning through play.  

The experienced and caring staff will work with you to settle your child quickly and will regularly update you on how they are getting on. Resources are made accessible in order that children can make their own choices and the displays and creative areas are developed to enhance children’s interests.

Session Times 

For continuity of the children’s learning experience, our preferences are as follows: 

  • 5 morning sessions or 
  • 5 afternoon sessions or 
  • 5 full day sessions  

(Exact timings and registration forms to follow shortly)
