Our preschool is a not for profit charitable company, run by a voluntary committee. We are located in the quiet rural village of Boxted, just to the north of Colchester and have our own purpose built building with enclosed outdoor area. 

We have seven experienced preschool practitioners, including five members of staff qualified in childcare to Level 3 and two to Level 2.  In addition, preschool assistants prepare and serve snack and support the practitioners whenever needed. Our business manager deals with all the administration. 

We are committed to providing a stimulating learning environment, but first and foremost one in which children feel happy, safe, valued and cared for. We treat each child as an individual and provide varied and balanced opportunities for all children to learn through play.

We are registered with Ofsted to care for children from two to five years of age, and accept government funded children.

 As an Ofsted registered provider, we follow the welfare and the learning and development requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. We have been judged to provide good quality provision. You can read the report by following the link at the bottom of this page.

We have close links with Boxted St Peters Primary School and have visits from  the reception teacher both from Boxted St Peters and other local schools.
