Our vision is to create a safe, secure environment indoors and outdoors; where all children, families and staff feel valued, empowered, and happy to grow and learn together. Children will actively learn through play and develop independence, confidence, and self-esteem, skilfully supported by practitioners.
Our Mission is to provide a secure, healthy, and inclusive environment in which all children feel supported in their learning.
We open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm, and run several different sessions between these times that meet parent’s needs. The session charges are reviewed annually and from September 2021 will be £15.00 for a 3-4-year old and £15.75 per session for any child under 3 years old, both fees are for any child who does not yet receive funding from Buckinghamshire County Council. In addition, children will need bring a packed lunch on any days in which they attend all day and afternoon sessions. From September 2021, we will be offering a service whereby the children can stay an extra hour after the morning session (until 1.00 pm) and have lunch at Preschool. The cost of this lunch time session is £4.50 per day. Again, a packed lunch would need to be brought to Preschool.
We accept 30 funding, please contact the office for further information.
We use a key person system, which ensures that each child, and therefore each family, has one member of staff who takes a special interest in them. Observations will be carried out at various times during your child’s time at Pre-School to record their development.
We provide a curriculum based on the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017) published by the Department for Education. This divides children’s learning and development into seven areas which are all important and inter-connected.
There are three prime areas: –
- Personal, social, and emotional development
- Communication and language development
- Physical Development
There are also four specific areas: – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive arts and design.
Our Preschool provides child lead planning to use the child’s interest to achieve each development area. Practitioners support and guide this learning with our adult invited activities. We also encourage independent skills at snack time and tidy up time. The Key-workers records are shared with parents via an online journal called Tapestry.

We are a community run setting managed by a voluntary committee of parents who are elected in each year.

Children are involved fully, from setting up and choosing equipment to helping with planning and making rules.
A broad range of play activities are available including sports and games, outdoor activities, drama and imaginative play, arts and crafts and cookery.
