Seedlings is a “not for profit” community based pre-school which operates out of a purpose developed setting within Dunstone Community Primary School.
There is excellent safe and security entry to the setting. We have an all weather covered outside decking area and a further outside area incorporating a paved patio for play and a grassed area for the climbing frame and gardening.
There is a "free flow" operation; this enables the children to have constant access to the outdoors. Seedlings is positioned towards the back of the school playground, directly in front of the school woods.
A trained member of staff leads the daily Forest School activities, available to all children.
We offer affordable term time education and quality child care for children aged between 2 – 4 years.
