Wenhaston Acorns Pre-School

Pre-School Playgroup

We are a thriving village pre-school, with connections to all our local schools. Our staff are experienced with all children’s needs. The children form close relationships with the staff and other children in the pre-school. We take walks around the village and involve our children in lots of activities such as cooking, messy play, building, mark making, social interaction, puzzles, bikes, outside exploration, festivals and religions. Child initiated play, we set a back ground topic and introduce it to the children and follow their lead. Through questionnaires our parents have said that they and their children feel valued and respected by the staff and the children are happy and thriving.
