Welcome to Whalton Pre-School!

We are delighted to have been awarded "Centre of Excellence" for the exceptional provision and practice that we offer.

At Whalton Pre-school we liaise, plan and work with the Reception staff and children of Whalton Primary School to offer the best curriculum and practice. This ensures that there is a smooth and stress free transition for your child when they begin Reception.

We have a high ratio of staff  to children so every child is given a lot of opportunity to work in a small group or 1-1 situation. Each child's interests and abilities are catered for in our play-centred learning. Our outdoor area is brand new and allows the learning to flow seamlessly between the outdoor and indoor classroom.

We work closely with parents and carers and have exciting community events over the year such as our Christmas production, the Teddy Bears' picnic, Sports Day and the Graduation Ceremony for our leavers. We also organise trips to places such as the 'Science Discovery Museum'  and other venues within our local area.
