Play, grow and explore together

St Michael's Pre-School is situated within St Michael's Primary School, and has access to the school playground, chipped bark climbing park and playing field.

Activities offered to the children aim to assist in the development of social, communication and problem-solving skills; as well as providing opportunities to be creative, to improve motor skills and to learn about the world around them.

The main emphasis is on having fun and learning how to form friendships, whilst at the same time preparing the children for formal schooling and encouraging independence, so that the transition to Reception Class is as seamless as possible when the time comes.

The Pre-School is run by staff with Early Years qualifications and experience of working with Pre-School children and is managed by the Governors of St. Michael's School.

We are now accepting children from 2 to 4 years.

Pre-School is open during school term-time (38 weeks per year):

  • Mondays and Fridays: 9.00am to 1.00pm
  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays: 9.00am to 3.30pm

Lunch Club is available daily and children may bring in their own lunch. Alternatively a hot lunch may be ordered via the school.

For further information: please telephone 01568 797241, and ask for Alison Jackson, our Pre-School Manager.
