About us:

Our pre-school is located in the Community Centre adjacent to Merley 1st School in Harrier Drive, Merley.  The pre-school has been located in Merley for over 20 years and boasts having some of the most highly qualified Early Years practitioners in Poole Borough.

The pre-school is a registered charity and is Committee run.

The pre-school staff have relevant and recognised Early Years Qualifications and attend at least 24 hours of training each year, this figure is often far exceeded.  The staff includes a qualified Early Years Professional and an Early Years Teacher.  We care for children with or without disabilities and Special Educational Needs (S.E.N) from all backgrounds, religions and cultures.  All staff have had criminal records checks from the Government's Disclosure and Barring Service to ensure their suitability to work with children.  The Committee members have had similar checks.  We offer a high adult to child ratio, which we feel is important for the welfare and development of the children in our care.

Our aim is:
  • To enhance the development, education and care of children aged from 2 years, in a family friendly, community based group.
  • To work with the Early Years Foundations Stage, to create individualised learning and support for each child, working alongside parents to create termly plans for areas of learning and development for their child.
  • To provide children with a safe and secure environment in which to explore and discover.
  • To encourage children to question what they know and to be curious and inquisitive by providing interesting, diverse and appropriate activities both indoors and outdoors.
  • To help enable children to become independent individuals with their own unique identities.

We offer your child:
  • A specially designed curriculum which supports the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
  • Individual care and attention made possible through a high adult to child ratio.
  • A fun learning environment with a friendly team of Early Years Practitioners.
  • The support of a key person for each child and their family.
  • Opportunities for you and your family to be involved in the group's activities, management and your own child's progress and development.
