About Us

Explore, Discover, Play

Our aim is to ensure that you feel confident that your child is happy, having fun and learning whilst spending time with us. Within a friendly, warm and safe environment our focus is to ensure children grow and develop to their full potential physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.

We aim to make our setting a welcoming place where children settle quickly and easily and consideration has been given to the individual needs and circumstances of children and their families.

By working together and being involved in your children’s preschool experience, we can achieve the very best outcomes for your child.

  • A curriculum based on your child’s interests, needs and abilities that follows the framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
  • Individual care and attention from experienced and qualified early years staff with the additional support of a designated key worker for each child
  • Opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved in your own child’s progress
  • We promote positive behaviour and encourage children to respect each other and their surroundings

Throughout their time at Snowy’s children gradually transition from our nursery room (Squirrels) into the pre-school room (Hedgehogs) where we prepare them for their next chapter at school.

Snowy’s Nursery and Pre-school is open Monday to Friday 8.45am to 3.15pm during term time. We operate extended hours two days a week on Tuesday and Thursday 8.30am to 4pm.

Charity Committee

Our Charity Committee is integral to Snowy’s. We are a committee led pre-school and without their support, Snowy’s would not be able to continue and the pre-school would have to close.

Our committee is made up of a small team of parents and volunteers who meet every half term to oversee the running of the setting; however, the day-to-day management of the pre-school is delegated to the Business Manager and Pre-school Manager.

There are two ways you can volunteer with us. You can join our committee and be part of your child’s pre-school experience or, if you prefer a more casual role, join our Friends of Snowy’s.

Fundraising is managed by the Friends of Snowy’s, which is essential in providing resources that encourage learning and development. Last year the money raised helped towards a mud kitchen, equipment for our vegetable garden and new toys and books. We welcome support in fundraising from all parents.

We need new members to join us – if you would like to join, please contact us for more information.
