Christchurch Preschool

Christchurch Preschool is a newly opened preschool situated in the Scout Centre, just off Fairmile Road in Christchurch. Owned and managed by ex childminders with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the early years, our vision is to provide a nurturing and homely setting where children can learn through play and exploration. We have a large open outdoor area where children have plenty of opportunities to develop their physical skills as well as growing their own fruit and vegetables and learning about the natural environment. We provide flexibility for working parents by opening all year round, Monday to Friday 8am-4pm. We are also conveniently located only a few minutes walk from Christchurch Infants and Juniors.
