Our preschool welcomes children from the age of 15 months to 4 years and we are registered to accept funded places and childcare vouchers.
Seedlings Preschool is based in the grounds of Dunstone Primary School, and was established in 2004. We have two rooms for our children, based around age and development - Hedgehogs and Squirrels.
Outside we have a spacious covered decking area for free-flow play and a large patio for water play and where our apple tree grows. In addition, we have access to a woodland area and run regular Forest School activities for all children throughout the week. Children from both rooms are able to access the outdoor areas as part of their timetables.
Seedlings is a bright and welcoming preschool for children to grow and learn. We provide a large indoor and outdoor space which children have free-flow access to throughout the day. We also run regular Forest School activities across the week.
What makes us different?
We run regular Forest School sessions throughout the week on site.
Each room has a large covered decking area, allowing free-flow opportunities for all children.
We offer a range of booking options, and do not restrict you to specific session times.
How we work
Our setting is split into two rooms - Hedgehogs for our younger children, and Squirrels for our 3-4 year olds. Each room has access to our outdoor areas, Forest School provision and gives the opportunity for children to grow and develop at their own pace.
We also have a Key Person system. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom they are particularly responsible - they will make sure that what the preschool provides is right for your child's particular needs and interests. When your child first starts, their Key Person will help them to settle and to benefit from the preschool's activities. A buddy system between staff is in place to ensure all children always have a familiar face to support them.
Each child at Seedlings Preschool will have a learning journey that develops with them. We use Blossom as an online record of their learning journey and experience, which parents can access securely and add to if they wish.
