This term at Willoughby Pre-School…

We had so much fun over the autumn term, culminating in a fantastic Christmas party visited by Father Christmas himself in his tractor! We are looking forward to spending more time outside playing and learning during the spring term.

We are so impressed with how well the children have taken to changes in routine due to the pandemic and continue to implement increased hygiene and safety procedures.

“Enthusiastic staff know the children very well…they are highly responsive to their needs & interests, ensuring that they have opportunities to talk about & extend their learning… “, OFSTED 2017

Toby’s confidence has grown so much since he started at Willoughby Pre-School! The staff are great and the opportunity to get out into the countryside is very special.

Teddy loves attending Willoughby Preschool. The staff are so friendly and dedicated. As it’s such a small setting they are able to adapt activities to the needs and interests of each child. We feel really lucky to be part of this community.
