We are a small pre-school established in 1975 and take children from two years old to school age. We are accommodated in the Fletcher Pavilion on the village playing field, surrounded by wonderful countryside with plenty of open green space and our own secure play area. We have close links with the Ridgeway Primary School (which covers the catchment area of Childrey, West Challow, Sparsholt and the Letcombes) and St Nicholas School in East Challow. 

Our Aim is to provide a warm welcoming, stimulating, supportive and safe environment for children and their parents/carers. We focus on recognising children as individuals and how they learn and develop, so we can tailor learning opportunities to ensure the full potential of each child is met. We encourage children to develop independence, respect for others and social skills through positive role modelling and praise. 

We welcome visits from parents and children at any time during our opening hours. Please telephone the pre-school during opening hours on 07825 241395 to arrange a visit.

Our pre-school is registered with the local Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership and qualifies for local education grants for our children. We are a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance (ref 21814) and a Registered Charity (number 1157264).

Childrey Little Ducks baby and toddler group runs every Wednesday morning (in school term times) between 9.30 and 11.30 am at the Methodist Church, Chapel Way, Childrey. We welcome all under fives and their parent/carers to join us for a fun morning in a relaxed and friendly setting. The session includes informal playtime, arts and craft activities, mid-morning snack and end of session singing. The charge is £2.20 for one child and 50p for each extra child. This cost covers our arts and crafts activity, as much tea or coffee as the grown-ups can drink, and a healthy snack and drink for the children. While this popular group has a relaxed atmosphere, parents/carers are expected to be actively involved in helping the session run smoothly and ensuring children have lots of fun in a safe way.
We are completely reliant on volunteers to run these sessions so if you are interested please contact the Pre-School for details.
