Charlwood Pre-School

Where children love to learn and play


About Charlwood Pre-School

Charlwood Pre-School provides a safe, friendly and stimulating environment for children from the age of 2.5 years. We have been operating for over 25 years and are located in the dining hall of Charlwood Village School with access to our own enclosed outdoor area with views across farm fields.

The Pre-School is managed by a committee consisting of parents who employ a team of well qualified and experienced staff to implement the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum specified by the Department for Education and Employment (DfES).

Charlwood Pre-School opens from 9.00am to 12.00 Monday to Friday and follows Surrey County Council school term dates. Our latest OFSTED Inspection Report is available to view at Pre-School or here. We are registered with the Charities Commission for England and Wales and are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.

All activities are "play" led so children enjoy the various resources that help with their personal development. Each term follows a "theme" to consolidate the learning experience and provide the widest possible foundation for your child's future learning.

Parents are invited to meet with their child’s keyperson each half term, so they can witness their child’s progress through the Early Learning Goals and the fun they have at Pre School. Supervisors and keypersons welcome parents and carers input. Regular discussions on individual child development are encouraged at drop off and collection times

Parents receive a 'Pre School Report' on the progress and achievements of their child when they leave to attend Infant School and progress is shared with their new school.

Charlwood Pre-School relies on the fundraising activities organised by the Parent led Committee to support the purchase of new equipment etc, therefore all parents/Guardian’s are asked to support the fundraising events at different times of the year. Details of how you can help are available throughout the year. Your support and involvement is key to the future success of our Pre-School.
