Welcome to Newick Preschool

Learning and Growing Through Play

Newick Preschool is an outstanding preschool and has been running for over 50 years, it has a well-earned place in the heart of the village community and provides excellent early years education for children in the early stages of their learning and development.

Situated at the centre of the village in the Old Reading Rooms, we believe in providing a safe and supportive environment that allows children to take their first learning steps through meaningful play.

All children are warmly welcomed at our Preschool and we ensure that all children are supported, valued, respected and included equally.

Why Children and Families Love Us?

Small is More!

A maximum of 23 children may attend the Preschool at any one time. It is open each day from 9.00am to 3:00pm during term time with morning and afternoon sessions. We pride ourselves on a welcoming, warm and inclusive environment where all children are welcomed, respected and valued.

Supporting you, and your child’s needs:

We accept children who receive Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE) funding. The preschool supports children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and also supports children who speak English as an additional language (EAL). The preschool receives support from the Local Authority and has maintained an Outstanding rating through OFSTED inspections (the most recent in 2019).

Children’s Learning and Development

It is our commitment to provide children with a variety of activities and experiences to ensure that every child receives an enjoyable and challenging learning and development experience. It is our intention to provide a well-planned and resourced framework to take their learning forward and to provide opportunities for all children to succeed in an atmosphere of care and of feeling valued. We use a variety of in the moment planning and topic centered planning (based on children’s likes, interests and needs) to ensure that our learning and development opportunities provide engaging learning opportunities which all children enjoy joining in with.

Identifying Early Child Needs

We appreciate that there will be a small number of children in the Early Years Foundation Stage who have special educational needs or disabilities that will require specific provision, such as specialist teaching, adapted equipment or support from an adult for particular activities. It is important that these children are identified as soon as possible and appropriate support provided. Other children may be more able and need activities that offer an appropriate challenge.
