Welcome to Bideford Baptist Pre-school. We are a registered charity and member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, which is a national charity in the field of care and education for under 5's. We are the largest preschool in Torridge, catering for more than 100 families throughout the year.
The Pre-school is run in two parts: the actual Pre-school caters for children aged between 2 and 5 years and the Toddler group, which meets in the upstairs hall on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday mornings 9.30 a.m. -11.30 a.m.
In line with the Pre-school Learning Alliance (PLA) policy, the Pre-school as a whole is run by an annually selected committee of parents/carers. It relies on everyone's support and involvement throughout the year in both helping at regular sessions and at fund-raising activities.
Without the committee there is no Pre-school.
We are registered with, and inspected by OFSTED and we can therefore accept children who are eligible for Early Years Funding and 2gether funding.
Our aim is to provide a safe and caring environment where children are given the opportunity to learn through play without fear of rejection or failure.
We hope that you and your child/ren enjoy your time at the Pre-school
