What We Do

Blackdown Pre-school provide high quality care and education to children within an environment that promotes the involvement of parents and the local community.

We offer a well-planned curriculum following recognised guidelines that ensures equality of opportunity for all children.

The children’s safety and well-being is paramount to us and we pride ourselves on offering the children who attend our pre-school the best possible start to their learning life.

At Blackdown Pre-school we offer a fun and exciting way to develop friendships, build on the children’s independence and enable the children to learn the skills required for the next step to school.

We work on supporting individual children with an assigned key person helping the children to build bonds and feel secure within the environment.
