Southwell Pre-School was established in 1976 by the local community for children to play and learn together in a friendly, fully inclusive environment with an ethos of learning through play.

We are a registered charity run by a team of qualified and dedicated staff and supported by a voluntary management committee of parents. We also work closely with parents and carers to ensure all children have a happy and fun-filled time, getting the most out of their pre-school experience.

Our children experience a wide range of stimulating, free and structured play activities that encourage social, physical and intellectual development.

Through activities such as digging, planting, climbing and adventure walks we make the most of our lovely garden area and beautiful park surroundings.

We welcome children aged 2 to 5 years (including those in nappies). Prospective parents are welcome to visit us and see us in action.

Southwell Pre-School is committed to promoting the welfare interests, equality and safe guarding of children within our care.
