At Shaldon Pre-school, we aim to provide every child with a quality early childhood experience. We accept children from the term before their third birthday and offer a varied learning journey until they go to school.

Located close to Shaldon Primary school, we have excellent links with the school to ensure a smooth transition for children. We were awarded a “Good” in our 2015 Ofsted inspection and staff and committee work together to consistently evaluate and improve the service we provide all our children.

We use the natural environment in the village to extend children’s learning with daily excursions out and about to the beach, the Botanical Gardens or the play area etc.

We offer sessions from 9am-12 noon and 12 noon – 3pm during school term time. The afternoon session includes lunch (to be provided by parents/carers).
