At Magpies Preschool we provide a child focused experience, where children are encouraged to explore and discover.

We care for our children with warmth and compassion, supporting individual needs.

An open and inclusive setting, we introduce your child to the start of their education positively.

At Magpies Preschool;

  • All of our staff are fully qualified, friendly and approachable.
  • We hold regular parent/carers meetings, forums, and drop in sessions.
  • We have frequent days out to local parks and shops, Forest School, and picnics for children family and friends.
  • Our strong special educational needs and disability team supports our inclusion of children of all needs and ability.
  • We use an online tool ‘Tapestry’ to allow us to monitor each child’s individual learning and to regularly share photo’s and progress.
  • With a nurturing educational environment we offer a range of daily activities to engage all children, enabling and encouraging children to reach their full potential.
  • We support children to become happy and confident, who are keen to progress to the next stage of their education.

Trips and experiences last year: Regular trips to Forest School, Blenheim Palace, Local parks, local shops, posting letters and cards to family and friends, visits from ‘Animal encounters’, special Christmas visitor, and parents with a whole range and talents and experience.

 

Breakfast Club and After School Club

Breakfast Club (before school and Preschool) and After School Club run here to provide wrap around care for working parents and carers, or others who need it. It runs to the same standard as Preschool, but is run seperately and has its own manager. Please refer to the 'North Breakfast & ASC' for more information.
