WEST Monkton Pre-School provides a friendly, safe and welcoming environment, and fun and varied learning experiences for children.

The pre-school takes children from two years up to primary school age.

There are funded places available from three years old, and some for two-yearolds will be available from September.

The pre-school’s qualified staff recently celebrated a ‘good’ rating following an inspection by OFSTED.

Among the facilities children enjoy is West Monkton’s pirate ship (below).

Children take turns driving the ship to see what treasure they can find.

There is also a refurbished garden and nature area providing safe and secure outdoor space for children to explore.

There are lots of opportunities for messy play inside and out, such as making mud pies or playing with shaving foam.

Children also love to dress up, and have had great fun transforming themselves into superheroes, footballers, doctors, nurses, princesses and more.

The pre-school is open in term-time on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9.15am to 2.45pm, and Tuesdays and Fridays from 9.15am to 12.15pm.

There is still availability for September, so get in touch or pay the pre-school a visit to reserve a place for your child.
