  • Our aim is that all children will enjoy their time at Mount Preschool and learn the skills they need to build the foundations of their early education, preparing them for the next steps into school and their future life.

  • "Our Family Caring for Your Family"

    Mount Preschool started as a Parent run pre-school as early as 1972. It has steadily progressed through the years and has seen many changes. Since 2014 it has been run as a private business by the Manager, Kay Guildford-James and has extended its opening times to provide full wrap-around care for children from 2 years old until they leave to start primary school.

    Children who attend Mount Preschool are welcomed into a warm, secure and friendly atmosphere, where they are supported in their early years by a team of well qualified and dedicated staff.

  • "Outcomes for Children are Good. Children acquire the essential skills they need for the next stage of their learning and eventual move on to school."

    Autumn activities

    Its been getting colder and the days are getting shorter but at Mount Preschool we have been busy with lots of activities.

    The children dressed up for Halloween and played Ghost Skittles. They enjoyed making firework and bonfire pictures using splashes of bright colours. They painted poppy pictures in the style of Monet and decorated giant poppies for Remembrance day.

    Some children made Rangoli pictures for Diwali and our Family Tree took on an Autumn feel with orange, yellow and red leaves.


  • Outdoor Play Enhancements

    In January we installed a new Mud Kitchen in the outdoor play area. The children were all immediately attracted and enjoyed transferring mud from the digging tyre to the kitchen.

    In February our lovely new planters have arrived and we will be busy in the next few days and weeks planting seeds, growing flowers and learning how plants grow.  If you are a keen gardener, have a few cuttings to donate or just like to get messy, please let one of the team know we welcome as much support you can give. 

    Also in February our new all weather outdoor easel has arrived which will provide the children with hours of creative fun.

    Finally we have had a playhouse donated from a local family and this now proudly sits in our playground, work has been ongoing sprucing this up, and the team are busy thinking of ways we can use this for some creative role play adventures.
