We have a beautiful enclosed garden and use of the natural surroundings on Lover Green. Our garden includes a wonderful newly erected outside classroom, gravel, construction, sand pits, slides, climbing apparatus, mud kitchen, stepping stones, understanding the world corner and a make a friend bench.

Our Pre-School provides

  • stimulating experiences which are specially tailored to individual needs
  • a place to have fun
  • a place to make friendships with other children and staff
  • a caring environment
  • an opportunity to build self-esteem, self-confidence and independence
  • opportunities for parents and carers to be involved

This is all in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework where children learn by playing, exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both inside and outside.

As an independent Pre-School, we feed into many of the local primary schools including Hale, Morgan’s Vale, Whiteparish, Downton and New Forest (Landford & Nomansland).

We offer opportunities for hands-on outdoor play experiences. Our nurturing, child-centered approach creates a happy and stimulating learning environment. We give each child the opportunity to develop at his or her own pace with adult support.
