About us

Our brand new, purpose built preschool was opened in June 2011, thanks to the commitment and hard work of our dedicated staff team, proactive parent committee and the support of the local community.


We are attached to Thorverton Primary School and enjoy a close working relationship with both pupils and staff. We have a newly refurbished, sheltered outdoor play area which is shared with class 1 and is available for use in all weathers. In addition to this we are lucky enough to make use of the school playground and outdoor woodland area with prior agreement.



We are a registered charity, run by a dedicated and pro-active parent committee who, along with the pre-school staff, ensure the continued growth and development of the pre-school through fundraising and day to day support.
