We have been at these premises since November 1985 when it was opened by the Mayor.
We are a charitable organisation, run by a committee comprising of
parents and carers of children who attend preschool. They are extremely supportive in many aspects and raise hundreds of pounds each year for preschool activities and resources.
We are open Monday - Friday term time only and can offer the following sessions:
3 Hour Sessions
4 Hour Sessions
All day (7 Hour) Sessions
8.30am- 3.30pm with children bringing in their own packed lunch.
We are situated in the middle of Saltash on a local bus route, quite
near to the town centre, Children’s Centre, Library, and Leisure Centre.
We are registered to take children from 2 years of age and offer
government ‘funding’ to 2, 3 and 4 year old children (as per government policies). Funding is available for up to fifteen hours per week for 38 weeks of the year. For more information about funding follow this link:
