West Buckland Pre-School

  • Type: Playgroup or Pre-School
  • Available: Inset Days|Term Time


We run a very busy rural pre-school, set in a village hall. We aim to explore the countryside around us as much as possible as I am forest school trained. We offer pre-school education and play and operate a policy of equal opportunities. Through their attendance we aim to help the children to continue the development started by their parents/guardians, encourage independance and help prepare them for full-time education.

Special educational needs and disabilites information

All early years providers should make their policy and provision for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is published in the providers SEN information report. You can find this providers SEN information report here.

If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions around the providers SEN provision you should contact the provider directly.
