Busy Bodies Pre-School

We are an established pre-school who have been open since 1998. We are an important part of St Aldhelm's Church. We are community based and non profit making which means all monies go back into making a high quality pre-school for your child. We provide a warm, caring and Christian environment in which every child can be healthy, safe, enjoy and achieve and make a positive contribution so that they can happily prepare for their school years ahead. The staff provide play opportunities and interaction to promote children's self esteem and support them in developing skills as they explore their world. We take every opportunity to further children's communication skills as well as engaging the children in problem solving and investigation. We stimulate children's imagination and creative development through a range of activties including role play, a variety of painting and drawing experiences with different media, singing and dancing to music as well as playing instruments. Please do not hesitate to give us a ring if you would like some further details.
