  • "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."

    Halloween Fun

    The children had great fun in the run up to Halloween We made pipe-cleaner spiders, Pumpkin funny faces and magic wands. The children enjoyed the stories of "Room on the Broom" and "Winnie the Witch" and dressed up in lots of different spooky costumes.

    They scooped out the flesh of a real Pumpkin and carved a face into it. On 31st all the children wore their own Halloween costumes to preschool and had a great time.

  • 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.
