Welcome to Cutcombe
Pre-School
 

Dunkery Preschool

Dunkery Pre-School is set in the rural village community of Wheddon Cross.

Initially established in August 2001 Dunkery Pre-School has gone from strength to strength to provide a wide range of educational facilities, maximising our resources by close association with Cutcombe First School and CLOWNS


Reg. Charity No: 1029608

OUR AIM
We are committed to provide a safe and friendly environment in which children aged 2 to 5 can develop in confidence and ability to achieve their full potential.
Our caring, professional staff provides a structured programme of “learning to learn through play” working within the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Dunkery Pre-School is a registered Charity run by a voluntary committee. We are OFSTED registered and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.
WHAT DO WE OFFER
We work closely with parents/carers to ensure that they are fully informed of their child’s progress. We also provide a “Key Worker System” where by each child receives individual care and attention.
All our staff are highly experienced and hold NVQ - 3 Early Years Child Care & Education training or equivalent and attend regular training days throughout the year.
A BRIGHT FUTURE
Dunkery Pre-School is delighted to announce that we have now moved into new, purpose-built premises at Cutcombe First School. Our close partnership with the school is a positive influence on our children allowing a smooth transition from pre-school to school. Within this setting the children have access to great play facilities which cover the 6 areas of development, a fun and secure out door area and superb IT facilities.
