About our pre-school

You will receive a warm welcome at our New Eltham pre-school from a most dedicated and professional team who have been with us for many years.

Our pre-school is located in a Scouts Hall, in a residential area and close to New Eltham station. The pre-school benefits from a lovely secure outside environment with woodland areas. Parking is available for parents on site.

The pre-school offers affordable flexible childcare. Parents can choose between morning or afternoon sessions, or a full day which is offered on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday term time. Every Friday the children enjoy the entire morning playing in a designated area in the garden, where they are encouraged to build camps, explore nature and the great outdoors, and detect the changing seasons. Parents are required to dress their children in appropriate clothing to suit all weathers.

Our dedicated team arrive early each morning and spend a considerable time creating a welcoming and magical environment for the children, which is both colourful and stimulating with a range of both indoor and outdoor activities that are developmentally appropriate.

Government funding is available depending on your child’s age.
