DO FEEL FREE TO POP IN AND CHAT TO US ABOUT THIS LATEST DEVELOPMENT IN THE LIFE OF OCCOLD PRESCHOOL.
Welcome to the Occold Pre-School website. We are a small, friendly, Charity-based pre-school, welcoming children from the village of Occold and surrounding areas.
We are based in a lovely purpose-built facility, with an attractive and secure outside play area and our own allotment. The pre-school is located in the centre of the village of Occold, within it's own room, in the Village Hall.
We offer a range of sessions during term-time, so that children can attend mornings, afternoons or full days (8.00am to 4.30pm) - see Sessions and Fees for details. Children are able to come to us from two years old. We aim to keep our fees as competitive as possibe.
We welcome children from all walks of life and, with varying abilities. Our team of experienced, highly-qualified staff provide a very high standard of early years education in a welcoming and secure environment. All of our staff are qualified to Level 3 Paediatric First Aid and, one of our preschool assistants is a qualified BSL Practitioner!
We are pleased to offer enhanced staffing levels at all of our sessions.
Parents/Carers, are encouraged to come and visit the pre-school at any time. Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more or to arrange a visit.
