Pre-School for Forces/MOD/Associated Partners of RAF Brize Norton

We provide Early Years education for children aged 2-4yrs to prepare them for their transition to primary school. We pride ourselves on providing a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment for children to explore, play and fulfil their potential. With a fantastic outdoor space, we spend plenty of time in the fresh air every single day, regardless of weather.

Our structure is designed to provide children with a sense of continuity and belonging as they form secure relationships with their peers and practitioners. 

Revamping our hours following the temporary COVID closure has enabled us to offer  15/30 hr funding, 2 yr funding and fee paying sessions.

We are happy to provide interested families with a copy of our prospectus for further information.
