At St George’s Pre School children are encouraged to explore our play based environment both indoors and outdoors. It is through play that children learn to make sense of their world and develop socially, physically, creatively and intellectually.
Every child has a key member of staff to support and work directly with them and their parents/carers. The staff prepare and deliver a personalised plan for each child’s care, well-being and learning.
The Pre School is registered to offer 24 places each day for children between the ages of 2 and 4 years. We are a term time only Pre School.
Our staff are all highly qualified, passionate, and have many years of experience in childcare and development between them. We continue to increase our knowledge regularly always interested ourselves in finding new methods and ways of learning.
Please note: attendance at St George’s Pre School does not guarantee a place at St George’s Catholic Primary School. All school admissions places are processed by Somerset County Council- Admissions Department, please read Somerset County Council’s Primary Admission Guide for criteria.
