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.

This is a warm and welcoming Preschool where the children learn and play and have fun. The Staff are enthusiastic and friendly and form very good relationships with both the children and the parents and carers. The programme of activities is always varied and exciting. A wonderful Preschool that meets the needs of the youngest children as well as those who are about to enter full time education.
— Laura, Parent


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.
