Starting at Pre-School

MONDAY: "Lets Cook"
Kids love the cookery sessions at Westoning Pre-School with Danielle, our "Lets Cook" Co-ordinator. From Spring Rolls to Cornish Pasties & cupcakes, the children learn about food while having fun. They don't always come out quite as Delia might recommend, but it's more about having fun while learning.

Where you start will define where you end up
The Pre-School has been established for over 30 years. We offer an inclusive setting and vigorously promote equality and diversity through partnership with parents, children and their community.
Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. Our friendly and experienced staff help children to continue to do this by providing all of them with interesting activities that are right for their age and stage of development.
Our environments are rich with resources and experiences to provide both a familiar and comfortably new context to enable every child to explore and discover their own ways of learning.
At Westoning Pre-school we follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage to ensure all the childrens' individual needs are met. There are 6 areas of learning which we cover through both indoor & outdoor activities
