East Cliff Pre-School

East Cliff Pre-School is a wonderful place for your child to learn and develop whilst having fun in a safe, nurturing, kind and caring learning environment. We treat every child as a unique individual and are extremely passionate in ensuring your child receives a learning experience at a pace that suits them. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on each child's personal, social and emotional development as well as their communication and language skills, and we have an environment that hugely supports their physical development. East Cliff Pre-School is OFSTED registered and is managed by Amanda Allison & Beckie Capewell who are both qualified with over 30 years experience between them. They are joined by a team of qualified, friendly, caring and experienced staff. Our warm and welcoming school is in a central location at East Cliff United Reformed Church, Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth (opposite Asda), where we provide bright, spacious, stimulating and secure environments both indoors and outdoors in the schools garden. Our school is open Mon to Friday mornings from 8.30am -2.30pm term time only. We offer places to 2-5 year olds and welcome all children and their families, regardless of ability, culture, religion or gender. Please telephone us to arrange a time to come and meet us.
