We aim to help your child find their own potential and independence


We are a popular and friendly village preschool based at The Community Centre in Great Chesterford. We offer a warm and caring environment for children aged two to four+. We aim to help your child reach their potential, find their independence and to enjoy their first learning experience whilst preparing them for Primary School.

We will always look back on our sons journey at preschool with a big smile on our faces. Thank you so much for helping our little boy find his confidence, happiness in friendships and most of all ‘his voice’.

Our preschool runs between 9.00 to 15.00 every Monday to Friday during term time.

Our flexible drop off period runs between 8.45 to 9.00. We have an excellent car park with plenty of space available for a calm drop off and collection!

The preschool day is organised around two main sessions: Morning 9.00 to 12.00 and Afternoon 12.00 to 15.00.  A full day is the equivalent of 2 sessions.

Children attending the afternoon session will need to bring in their own packed lunch and they can enjoy eating their lunch with their friends.

It was really lovely to be back in the fold of such a wonderful, nurturing, caring preschool. In the 2 hours I was there over the last couple of days I didn’t see one child cry, moan, argue or look even remotely unhappy which is really, really heartwarming, a truly lovely place for children to be.
