About Us

About Us

Knossington & Somerby Preschool aims to provide high quality childcare and education in a safe and friendly environment. We nurture the children through play, to learn and develop in six key areas following Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance. We offer a wide range of activities which challenge and stimulate children, preparing them for school and life as happy and confident individuals. Play is always child led but we ensure that they achieve nationally approved learning outcomes so that they progress with confidence to Primary School

The Committee

Knossington & Somerby Pre-school is a charity run pre-school managed by a committee of volunteers.  We are also a Limited Company and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance (PLA) which offers support in all aspects of running a pre-school including a fully tailored insurance package.  We encourage parents to join the pre-school committee as we rely on parents’ support for administration and fundraising.  We hold an informal meeting once each half term which is a great opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes and meet other parents.
