Pinewood Family Group Pre-School, situated within Pinewood Infant School, has been running successfully since 1983. Our name emphasises that all family members are welcome and encouraged to become involved; our ethos builds on establishing positive relationships with all members of the family.  

We offer sessional care for children from 2 years to school age

We have our own separate area within the school that provides a safe and stimulating environment that includes a secure garden with play area. 

In addition we have the benefit of enjoying many of the School’s on site facilities, these include the woodland walk garden, the hall, drama room and playground area; these serve to add to the learning environment.


Our aims

We strive to create a warm and stimulating environment where learning is fun. We engage in activities that promote and extend children’s curiosity and awareness of their world - our primary focus is learning through play and exploration.

We encourage children to grow in confidence, self-esteem and independence, and treat each child as an individual who has needs that should be met in an atmosphere that celebrates diversity and equality.  We will nurture your child’s social and emotional skills.
