At Crabtree Pre-School we aim to create a stimulating, enjoyable, caring and safe environment that will allow your child to learn and develop, fulfilling their potential and preparing them for primary school.
We are set in a purpose built building with an 'all-weather' garden allowing free-flow play inbetween indoors and outdoors. We aim to promote independance of children e.g purpose built toilets enbaling the children to use them independantly. We allow the children to select toys from a wide range of resources which can stay out permenantly. We display children's work on the walls which gives the children a sense of achievment.
We have no catchment area so all children are welcome. Children of military families are offered spaces as a priority.
We have between 25-35 children on our books.
