The preschool is open to children from 2 years 6 months up to 5 years. Children join us to have fun and to learn, through play, the individual skills needed to enter school confidently and enthusiastically. Sessions run from 9am to 1pm Monday to Thursday during term time only. For children in their pre-school year we include special study groups where they can concentrate on more structured play and pre-reading/writing skills. The Pre-School meets at Alderton Village Hall, which is bright, spacious and centrally heated. There are special toilet facilities, a kitchen for cookery and preparation of snacks for the children and two outside play areas. We also have our own large range of play equipment which is constantly updated and added to.
