Pumpkin Pre-School

3 – 4 Years

Our pre-schoolers benefit from sessions planned and run by our qualified teachers, following the same Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines as school nurseries, but with a focus on the individual interests and needs of each child.

Because we work with higher staff ratios than schools, we can often be found on regular trips out around the village, learning about the environment, exploring the woods, using the large play equipment at the park and practising their maths and bargaining skills at the local shop!

We offer 15 and 30 hour funded places which can be spread and used throughout the year, including for wraparound care.


Some of our pre-school enjoy wearing the Pumpkin Pie Uniform (as seen in the photo above) as it helps them to develop a sense of routine, belonging and getting ready for the transition to school. To order uniform for your pre-school child, please email [email protected]. We have a small stock of items at nursery which are available on a first come first served basis and we place new orders each term for any additional items required.

Rising Reception Mezzanine

Our older pre-school children – “Rising Reception” – are lucky to have their own room designed as a quiet space for small group sessions and one to one learning.  Here we help each child to achieve their early years goals away from the hubbub of the main room.
