Downton Pre-School

Downton Pre-school, which occupies the ground floor of the new extension, is a friendly, welcoming establishment that has been providing early years education in Downton since 1980.

We feel passionately that each child’s learning is based around their individual interests. Children learn when they are engaged and stimulated and we aim to provide an environment that continually does both! We promote the use of authentic resources to spark imagination, for example our role play area includes real shoes, hats and costume jewellery. We are lucky enough to have an amazing outside space that the children have free flow access to throughout the day.

The pre-school is open from 8am – 5:30pm, Mon-Fri, Term Time only. We offer hot meals for children at lunchtime through our strong links with Downton Primary School and we are rated “Good” by Ofsted (January 2018).
