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. 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.
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.
We follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage and we work closely with outside agencies to ensure all the children's' individual needs are met. Please refer to our prospectus for further information on the EYFS. There are 6 areas of learning which we cover through both indoor & outdoor activities:
Please contact Westoning Pre-School if you would like to arrange a visit.
Westoning Preschool is run by Committee which means that as a parent, you can play an important role in the decision-making process for your child's pre-school. We also encourage parents to help out at the setting on a rota basis. This helps parents have a detailed understanding of what activities their child is doing and what they are learning. More information is available in the Committee section of this site
Once children reach the term after their third birthday they are offered five free places per week until they reach school age. This is funded by our local education authority.
The pre-school can accommodate 24 children per session, it is advisable to register your child on the waiting list. Children can start pre-school from the age of 2 years and will typically move to Westoning Lower School . Should you wish your child to attend the lower school an admission form can be obtained from Central Beds County Council, attendance at Westoning Pre-school does not guarantee a place in the lower school.
Children do not need to be toilet trained before starting Pre-School,we are happy to take children in nappies. For more information, please view the policies & procedures section of our site
