Shipham Pre-School

Shipham Pre-School (ranked ‘outstanding by Ofsted) is open to all children aged between 2-5 years from the village and surrounding area and is a wonderful way to prepare your little one for school life. With currently no more than 10 children in the Pre-School at any time it’s a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment in which children grow and thrive. Learning is play based (following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum) and is always flexible enough that it can be tailored to each child’s capabilities, needs and interests. The Pre-School is sited in the grounds of Shipham First School and works closely with the School to ensure that children are prepared for the big step into full-time education, wherever that may be.

Our staff are experienced, inspirational and – most importantly – adored by the children, and the Pre-School boasts fabulous indoor and outdoor facilities including forest school, purpose-built play house, amazing pirate ship with climbing wall and slide, trikes, bikes and scooters, craft and activity areas, messy play, and dressing up box. This term the children are learning all about castles and fairy tales, so there’s the opportunity to dress up and play in our very own indoor castle. Pre-School also benefits from access to the adjacent First School grounds, plus weekly gym sessions in the First School hall.
