The summer holidays might be upon us but for parents still wrestling over their childcare for September onwards, Aldwincle Pre-School could be the perfect option as an early years setting for those able to manage the shorter hours of a pre-school day.

Conveniently located next door to Trinity CE Primary School, it has long been a popular choice for parents living in Thrapston and the surrounding villages, including Islip, Lowick and Sudborough, and here are some of the reasons why:

Intake from two years old

A relatively new but popular initiative, pre-school now accepts children from two years old.  As with all new starters, parents are encouraged to visit with theirchild before their first day to help familiarise them with the setting, staff and other children.

High staff/child ratios

At Aldwincle, there is the time to truly nurture the educational, personal, social and developmental needs of every child as they learn and play.  There is no ‘one size fits all’ rule and the experienced team ensures that every child gains the most from their time there.

Indoor and outdoor play areas

Weather-permitting, the doors are flung open to the garden and both spaces provide safe, fun, and stimulating learning environments.

Supporting each other

Alison and her team are committed to supporting parents and sharing in the responsibility of each child’s development.  Spend any time at Aldwincle and you’ll also witness the charming friendships that blossom there and the sense of camaraderie that exists.

Laying foundations for the future

Alison also works closely with the Headmaster at Trinity CE Primary School, to ensure that the early years’ provision is aligned between the settings.  Visits are also made into Reception during the summer term to hopefully make the transition up to ‘big school’ as stress-free as possible.

Their promise to you

To provide your child with a safe, fun, caring and stimulating learning environment that feeds their curiosity, supports their development and prepares them for the step up to primary school.
