Parkside Pre-School

Pre-School

Parkside Pre-School is based in purpose built accomodation in the Parkside Centre; it is registered with Ofsted to take up to 30 children aged from 2 to 4 years for five mornings and four afternoons a week.  There is also a lunch club available from Monday to Thursday. We have places for children qualifying for two-year-old funding as well as those on 3-year-old funding or paying fees.  We are registered for Tax Free Childcare and also accept Childcare Vouchers.

Our Pre-school aims to support the children in learning about and exploring their world through play and providing high quality affordable pre-school education and childcare within the local community.  Further, we aim to be a focal point for the community bringing families together in pursuit of opportunities for their children and themselves. 
 
Parkside Pre-School welcomes all children including those with special educational needs.  It is a registered charity with twelve experienced staff, including a graduate leader, and a number of volunteers.  We are run by a management committee of parent/carers as a non-profit making charity.

We aim to provide a safe, secure, yet stimulating environment, free from prejudice or discrimination, in which your child has the opportunity to discover the world around them, both in-doors and out, and to learn from these experiences.  We match what your children experience at the Pre-School to their individual specific needs.
