St Gabriel’s Pre-School has been established since 1973 and is managed by a voluntary committee of Parochial Church Council members. The Pre-School is registered with Ofsted on the Early Years Register and operates within the Government guidelines for Early Years’ Provision. We operate from a purpose built building, situated in Turlin Moor, near to the main town of Poole. The Pre-School serves the local community and provides care for 48 children between the ages of two and five years. The Pre-School receives funding to provide free early education for children aged two, three and four-years-old of 15 hours. Our accommodation of two main play rooms, an outside classroom and a large enclosed outdoor area allows the children who attend to free-flow across both child and adult led play. The Pre-School also has access of the large church hall for physical activities and takes part in weekly offsite walks to local woodland, beaches and nearby parks. The Pre-School employs 9 staff, all of whom have a range of appropriate qualifications in childcare and education.
