Preschool aims for your child

Multi Culture Kids Playing hands in hands. isolated on white

These are the things we would like children to have achieved at the end of their time at Preschool:

  • To be settled and build good relationships
  • To develop self help skills
  • To be able to communicate effectively
  • To be able to maintain focus for a period of time
  • To be able to develop mark making skills
  • To move confidently in a variety of ways
  • To have a sense of who they are
If you would like to talk about this further, please speak to your child's keyworker or another member of staff.
Unsure of who your child's keyworker is? Please ask when you are next at the setting!!


We are pleased to announce we have a new booking system in place for Holiday Club! We are also able to take bookings for GAPS out of School Club for September 2022 and closure days and later this year we will be able to take registration and bookings for Abington Preschool.

Please email to ask about our new booking system and we can talk you through it. We have to ensure that we have the correct staffing in for all bookings, so some bookings you may have to contact us to book it in, rather than you being allowed to book it yourself.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you and having your children booked in with us.
