Welcome to our pre-school website
About us... Great Longstone Pre-school is a small, friendly and independent pre-school for children aged from 2 to school age. Our focus is on learning through play and we provide a stimulating and safe environment for children to learn and explore the world around them.
Great Longstone Pre-school has been running for over 30 years and has been a registered charity since 1984.
We are a small, friendly setting and have three lovely members of staff who create a welcoming and stimulating environment in which our children can learn and grow.
We put a lot of focus on child-led play and like to throw open our doors so that children can choose where they play and what they play with; free-flow play. We understand that every child is different and ensure that each one has the opportunity to learn in a way that inspires them. For example some children may not enjoy mark-making when done indoors with a pen and paper but their imagination is captured when allowed to play with the chalks on the path outside.
Although no two days are the same at pre-school, many parents like to have an idea of how our day works and the kind of things we do. Please click here for an example day at pre-school. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework within preschool and further information on our curriculum can be found here
