We have one pre-school based in Chippenham at The Oaks, SN15 1DU.

It provides childcare for pre-school children and is run and managed by Graduate Leaders with outstanding expertise in early childhood education.  Our pre-school is staffed by highly trained and well qualified staff who regularly improve their skills and knowledge by undertaking professional training and by carrying out detailed observations of children in order to plan for improved outcomes.

In addition, our pre-school is fully integrated with our Children’s Centre teams. Families who are fortunate enough to have their children attend our pre-school will benefit from all of the Children’s Centre services and staff.
