Locking Preschool is a fantastic provision located within the beautiful grounds of Locking Primary School. We are extremely fortunate to have a fantastic space for the children to learn, grow and explore in. The setting is based next to the foundation stage classroom so this will give your child a wonderful and familiar transition to Locking Primary School. We offer free flowing continuous play between our inside and outdoor areas. This wonderful space ensures the children have the very best environment to start their lifelong journey of learning as well as nurturing their independence. The opportunities and experiences we offer the children will be sure to extend their learning and development at your child’s individual pace. The first five years in a child’s life is a crucial learning stage, we ensure that we give all children opportunities to widen their knowledge around communities and culture celebrations such as Diwali and Christmas.
We understand that all children learn at their own pace, we continue to offer bespoke Forest School sessions, where children learn independence, risk taking, problem solving techniques & safety skills. This enhances their confidence, self-esteem & their personal, social and emotional skills. Children are offered natural resources and home grown produce where possible, is available for the children to incorporate into their role play in our home corner. We offer an extensive curriculum which is tailored around both the EYFS and the individual interests and requirements of the children we care for.

Our staff are highly qualified, experienced and are fully committed to meeting the needs of every child and their family that attends our provision. Open term time 9:00am-3:30pm Monday- Friday.
