Welcome to Widmer End Pre-School.
We provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age. With a broad range of challenging and stimulating play activities, both indoors and outdoors, we promote children's overall development. Our key worker system and individual planning enables each of our children to work towards their own personal goals. We believe that parents know their children best and we ask you to contribute to our own observational assessments, sharing information about what your children like to do at home, so that together we can support their development.
The Preschool is now taking applications for September 2021 for children born between 1st September 2017 and 31st December 2018.
Comments from current parents
I’ve just picked up your email and I wanted to say thank you to you and all the staff in preschool. I think what you are doing and have done for our children is beyond amazing and I’m sorry you as teachers haven’t been supported and protected during this pandemic - You all deserve medals!
Take care & keep safe.
Once again, thank you!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for our child.
Thanks to you all in pre-school he is now confident, enthusiastic, loves singing and has a real love for learning.
So sad we didn’t get to have the whole year with you but I know that our child has such lovely memories of his time in pre-school and speaks about every member of staff and all the fun things to do.
As a family we’re so grateful for the support you gave us during lockdown the stories, songs, key worker messages and activities were just brilliant!
Ever since my child started your classes I have noticed a vast improvement in their behaviour, attitude, willingness to learn and more. They come home telling us what they were taught on a daily basis. This is not un-noticed and therefore we would like to say - THANK YOU very much.
Some comments from Parents of children who finished Preschool in July 2019.
Preschool have manged my child's individual needs and challenges very well. My child has really enjoyed their 19 months at Preschool and has experienced lots of wonderful things. Thank you for all you do.
For the two years my child has been at the Preschool Karen and her team have been warm and welcoming in making my child happy, comfortable and confident in their surroundings. There is so much to do in the classroom to keep the children entertained and learn to thrive with their independence. The routine from drop off to pick up has helped hugely in future classroom settings.
I'm so pleased that we made the right decision to send our child to this preschool, because of their key worker and all the other staff, you have given them the best start in their life. I can't thank the team enough for all their hard work and the love and care they give each child in their care. Karen has gone above and beyond this year and I will never forget the support we received. To all of you, thank you so much.
