Welcome to North Wraxall Pre-School
A Pre-School for children aged 2+ years, situated in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, yet only minutes from Marshfield and Colerne and a short drive from Chippenham and Bath.
We are open during term time, Monday – Friday 9am-4pm.
Our North Wraxall Family is a small, friendly one.
We understand that starting pre-school is a huge step for both child and parent and how important it is to be comfortable with the people who will be caring for your child. You’re welcome to visit us as many times as you feel necessary to make that all important decision.
With a maximum of 25 children, your child will quickly build their confidence and, with our support, will begin to explore the world independently.
We believe that each child develops at their own pace. It is our role to support this in a way which recognises each child’s individual character.
We are proud of our relaxed learning environment and believe we provide a happy balance between the security of a predictable routine and the flexibility to accommodate different children’s needs.
We believe in fresh air and the great outdoors and we try to ensure that children enjoy some time outside each day. Our free-flow policy allows the children to move between outdoor and indoor activities – letting their imaginations lead them.
We also believe in good food and fostering healthy eating, and provide nutritious snacks for the children during their busy day.
The setting of our preschool is rural and quiet. Our fantastic outdoor space gives us a wealth of opportunities for play and learning on a daily basis, such as searching for treasure, discovering bugs, climbing amongst the trees, playing in mud, sand, water or simply playing tag.
Inside we have one large play room with activity tables that run through the day, as well as ‘Book Corner’and imaginative play areas for a mix of child-led and adult-directed play.
We follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ curriculum. Each child has the opportunity to explore a broad range of new experiences, develop skills, self-confidence and to share and play with other children.
Our ‘Rising 5’s’ session for children who will be starting school the following September is more structured and includes phonics, numbers and time as well as practical skills, e.g. the morning register and getting changed for P.E.
We also hold a Forest School session, which runs throughout the year in our onsite wood and is open to all.
