Appleton Pre-School

Appleton Village Pre-School has been running since 1968.  We are a non-profit making preschool and, as a member of the Pre School Learning Alliance, we are kept up-to-date on all aspects of early years education.  Most of our children move on to Appleton Primary School with whom we enjoy strong links.  We like to consider ourselves a stepping-stone for the children's transition from babyhood to 'Big School'.

Appleton Village Pre-school is a popular, friendly Pre-school run by dedicated staff and parents. The Pre-school is a registered charity which has been situated in Appleton Village Hall since 1968. 

As a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance we are kept up-to-date on all aspects of Early Years Education.

Most of our children move on to Appleton Primary school with whom we enjoy strong links.

All staff are fully qualified and paediatric first aid trained.

We welcome children from 2 years and 9 months old and offer the Government funding from the term after children turn 3 years old, over a range of flexible sessions.

Please phone 07500453723 or Email for further information and to arrange a visit.
