Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you provide?

As a committee run charity, Lavington Community Pre-school believes in the strength of promoting British values to the children and aspiring them to stay safe and healthy and be the best they can be. Nurturing and educating our children in a safe, secure and stimulating environment allows each child to learn inclusively and develop as unique individuals.

We believe in celebrating each child’s diversity and promoting excellent self-esteem and self-confidence. Play is children’s work! It is natural, essential and instinctive. Children learn through play actively and effectively, supported by the knowledge and care of empathetic Practitioners, Early Years Teachers and Educators.

We provide a structured day based around indoor and outdoor adult-led and child initiated play.
