About Us

Our Pre-School

We are a community based, voluntary managed, pre-school in the village of Cobham in Kent. We provide quality care and education for children from the age of 2.5 years until starting school. We run a wide variety of activities for our children, 5 days a week during term time

Our Aims

Our pre-school aims to:

  • Provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age;
  • Work in partnership with parents and carers to help children learn and develop;
  • Offer children and their families a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

For more information on what you can expect your child to be achieving during their pre-school years and how you can help them, please read the What to Expect guide. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
