Downton Community Preschool has made the very difficult decision to CLOSE during the COVID-19 Pandemic until further notice. As you are aware on Friday 20th March all schools and nurseries were advised to close by the government. It was our intention to stay open to provide a childcare service for those parents who were Keyworkers, however we found that families were making the decision to keep their children at home and we only had a very small amount of children attending. The health and safety of our children, families and dedicated staff is our highest priority and this has also led to the decision for us to close the doors to the preschool during this unprecedented time. It is important to remember that this is temporary. We would like to thank you all for your support ant we will continue to keep in touch with our families regularly via email.
We send our best wishes to stay safe during this time and look forward to reopening our doors and welcoming all of our families back to preschool. You can still contact Becci or Emma on email@example.com with any enquiries.
We are now open from 08.00am-5.30pm Monday to Friday! Please feel free to come and have a look around our lovely new building. We still have spaces available and would love to welcome your child into our Downton Community Pre School family, call us on 01725 511178.
We have an opportunity for a new Pre school and SENCO Assistant to start with us ASAP, for more information and the application pack click on the link below:

We are very pleased that our latest Ofsted inspection has given us a rating of Good.
The inspector made lots of very positive observations about preschool: the staff, the children's outcomes, their happiness and evident enjoyment of preschool. We are delighted that the preschool has received this recognition, which we feel is well deserved. We will continue to work hard to keep the standards high at preschool and build on this achievement.
