Wollaston & Strixton Pre-School was established in 1966. We are a community Pre-School which is run by a Voluntary Management Committee of elected parents / carers.

In March 2011 we were delighted to move our Pre-School into the new WAY building, located in the grounds of Wollaston Community Primary School. The WAY building was purpose built with our small children in mind and we now offer excellent modern facilities for play and learning during our Pre-School sessions. We also have direct access to our own secure garden space for ‘free flow’ play outside.

The children will benefit from being located within the Primary School site as many of them will continue their education at the Primary School when they reach the appropriate age. The school is no longer a scary place with lots of bigger children but a place they are comfortable and secure in. The advantages of having the use of the playground and a wonderful sectioned off garden (just for the Preschool) are numerous for the children and can only serve to further add to their education and learning experience.

We have an excellent rapport with the local community and the Head Teacher of the primary school, who has shown enormous support and is dedicated to continuing links between the two establishments.

We provide a friendly and caring environment in which we strive to meet the individual needs of the children. Our session planning is driven by the interests and needs of the children so as to make learning fun but at the same time challenging.

Besides helping children to work towards the Early Years Foundation Stage, we also place great emphasis on developing the self esteem, confidence, language and communication skills of the children.
