Heathlands Community Pre-School and Out-Of-School Club

Pre-School Playgroup
General Details

We have been providing excellent childcare for the past twenty years ensuring that children are in a safe, nurturing and irresistible learning environment. We have a personal approach to working with children & families which reflects equality & inclusion. We provide a rich & stimulating learning environment that builds a desire to explore & be challenged grounded in a child centred curriculum. Situated in the grounds of Broke Hall School we are able to work in close partnership with the nursery school & facilitate a smooth transition from Heathland's preschool to Reception. We are very proud of our 'outstanding' assessment by Ofsted received consecutively in November 2014 and April 2018. We offer the highest standards of childcare and opportunities for learning through play.
