Tugboats Pre-school | About Us
We are extremely proud that we were recently awarded 'Good in all areas’ from an Ofsted Inspection (2018.)
Tugboats is a small friendly pre-school in a rural setting, built for the expanding needs of the community and catering for the development and educational needs of children aged 2 ½ to 5 yrs. We opened in Sep 1997 and operate from one airy pre-school room with a larger adjoining room (community room).
The children have a garden, partly soft play, grass and paving stones accessible from our pre-school room along with our own secure entrance all of which can be accessed by wheelchairs. The staff are supported by a Committee and serve the local area.
Nuturing little minds to safeguard their future. Giving secure foundations to learn,explore and challenge
Learning and Creativity
We currently run two sessions per day, Mon to Fri during term time. Opening times are 0840 – 1140 morning session and 1140 – 1440 afternoon session (children to provide their own packed lunch). We also run a full day 0840 - 1440. The cost per session is £8.50, or £17.00 for the full day for non-funded children. Children that are 3yrs+ are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare (or 30 hours) via local authority funding which will be organised by Tugboats on your behalf.
