We are a high quality, small, friendly Preschool in the heart of Sway in the new forest, which has been established nearly 50 years.
We currently take children from 2 years to school age and are open from 8-5 48 weeks per year
With outstanding ratios of never more than 5 children per member of staff, we feel we can provide an excellent environment for your child to feel safe and secure.
Our staff are fully trained, with a passion and commitment to making this a fun and welcoming setting for young children.
The layout of the preschool allows continuous access to outdoor play, a vital part of the Early Years curriculum. We also have regular access to the main Hall.
In 2010 our outside space was resurfaced providing a rubbery surface for the children to play on.
In November 2015 we were given another 'Good' Ofsted report-
Summary of Key findings for parents-
- This provision is good
- Children thoroughly enjoy their time at the pre-school. They build strong relationships with the staff, who ensure they are happy and settled.
- Staff are caring and meet children's individual needs well.
- The manager and the staff team work very well together and have a good understanding of the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
- Staff undertake training to improve their teaching skills and use what they learn to the learning experiences they offer children.
- Parents are kept well informed about what staff are planning and the day-to-day running of the pre-school. They are invited to regularly comment on their child's progress to help ensure a continuous learning environment flows from the setting to home and back.
- Staff demonstrate a secure understanding of how children learn. They provide a stimulating and well-organised environment, and this helps children to make their own choices about their play. Children are making good progress in their learning.
