Poppets Pre-School

Caring for your children

Thanks for visiting!

At Poppets Pre-School we provide a fun, caring and welcoming atmosphere where all children are encouraged to achieve to their full potential, through nurturing, loving and friendly relationships and a stimulating environment. We believe that every child deserves to feel loved and valued and we support them in developing their own unique character.

Our setting has excellent links with all the local schools and we work closely with our Local Authority Early Years Inclusion and Improvement Advisers.

Poppets Pre-School is owned by Poppets Childcare Ltd., with Laura Phillips as the Director. Laura has a Foundation Degree in Early Years and all staff are experienced in childcare. A large number of staff also hold childcare qualifications at Level 3 or above. All staff have enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks and are qualified in paediatric first aid. They are also trained in child protection and food hygiene. Further training for staff is performed on a regular basis.

We also have a lot of experience of working with children with special and additional needs. We have cared for children with Downs Syndrome, Autism, Aspergers, speech + language difficulties, physical disabilities and complex health needs. Staff have attended numerous specialised training courses and work closely with other professionals. In September 2018 we became one of the borough's Inclusion Hubs, receiving specialist training in a range of disabilities and therapies.

The setting caters for children aged between 2 to 4 years old and offers 29 places. We have a staffing ratio of 1:4 for children aged 2 years and 1:8 for children aged 3 years and over.

At Poppets Pre-School we provide a wide variety of fun and stimulating activities such as :

  • Story and Song Time
  • Creative Activities
  • Construction
  • Home Corner
  • Messy Activities
  • Cooking
  • Water and Sand Play
  • Small World Play
  • Puzzles and Games
  • Early Literacy and Maths Skills
  • Daily Outdoor Play

and much more

We feel extremely blessed to be part of so many young children's early start in education and thank everyone who has attended Poppets Pre-School. We are also looking forward to meeting and supporting new children and their parents in the future.

At Poppets, we believe outdoor play is vital.  We are fortunate enough to have a large outdoor play area at the rear of the building as well as use of the extensive field at the front. In 2021, we added an enclosed garden area at the front of the building giving children the opportunity to free-flo play during the warmer months.
