Downton Community Pre-School

Established in 1980, Downton Community Pre-School is a thriving group catering for pre-school children in Downton, Wiltshire.

We strive to offer a caring, safe and stimulating environment in which your child may grow and learn through play. The Pre-School is a non-profit making charity run by a parent management committee whose aim is to be responsive to the needs of our local community. See our aims.

Our staff are trained, experienced and committed to supporting, encouraging and inspiring all the children in our care so, if you think they’ll like... cutting, sticking,chatting, painting, printing, dressing up, model making, building, counting, singing, running, dancing, drawing, looking at books, climbing, throwing, catching, clapping, laughing, playing and making friends then come and see us soon!

"Children learn to manage their feelings, behave well and think of others. They develop independence in managing their personal hygiene and putting on coats, develop important practices to keep themselves healthy and they help with some routines.  Staff extend children's vocabulary and encourage physical skills."
"Children arrive happy and settle quickly to the activities. Children have strong relationships with their key person. "
