DD (2.10) scared of other children

DD is an only child and has no cousins (this is practically unheard of in an Irish family!).
We live rurally and I'm a bit of an introvert. There are no baby/toddler groups where I live. There was one about 30 mins away which we went to but it closed due to lack of interest.
Anyway DD seems to be scared of other children. We go to the park and her favourite thing is the slide but if there are other children on it she backs off. If given time she does get a bit braver but just to the point that she won't run away!

Anyway she's due to start pre-school in September and I had to call in the other day to pay a deposit. I had DD with me. She hid behind my legs and wouldn't move. It was loud but no one approached her or anything. We got 6 foot from the door and she just burst out crying. After I'd got her home and calmed down she said she was scared.

Any ideas on how I can help?
