Strangways Village Hall Market Street
From tiny acorns do mighty oaks grow, and we can't wait to see how your child will flourish! At Chesil Bank Pre-school, in-line with the government's 'Early Years Foundation Stage' guidelines, we make sure your child is safe, happy and ready to learn through play. We see each child as an individual and encourage their growth with kindness, dedication and reward, whilst feeding them with a growing knowledge of social rules. We value playing in the fresh air, with plenty of time spent in our outdoor area, climbing riding, playing in the sand, scooting, running and tending to our garden and allotment area. We even use the fruits (and veg!) of our labours in our weekly cooking sessions. Set in the delightful village of Abbotsbury we regularly go on 'seasonal themed learning' walks and outings - after all, we are in one of the UK's most beautiful places! Inside, we have great fun with dressing up, play dough, a 'home corner', painting, crafts, number-work, shared reading and songs. We have special workshops with arts and music professionals, where our children branch out and flower with new materials and innovative techniques. We even run a Baby/Toddler group once a week so you can make an early start and easy transfer to the Pre-school! As your child becomes old enough to go to primary school, we will help with the transition too.
