Update: Newsletter published December 4th
Ropley Preschool is situated in the heart of Ropley village in Hampshire. Children attend from here and the surrounding villages and move on to either state and private schools in the area. We provide Early Years Education for the local community and have adopted strong links with the local Primary School.
We strive to prepare your child for starting school by providing fun and enticing opportunities to develop their creativity, curiosity and confidence to learn. We plan and implement activities through both structured and play based learning underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We have access to a large green space, gardening patch and also offer optional music sessions run by an external provider.
