Worlingham Pre-School is presently based at the back of Worlingham Primary School, Garden Lane, Worlingham, previously Worlingham Middle school.
The pre-school was moved to its present location in August 2011 as part of ‘Suffolk County Council’s’ re-organisation plans (phase 2) of closing the middle schools’. The pre-school was invited by the council to move to the middle school(now primary school) as the pre-school mobile (in playground of old primary school) was needed to accommodate the new year 5 children, in the primary school facility.
The Pre-school is voluntary controlled and the committee is responsible for the group. It is normally made up of elected parent/carers, who stand for one or two years. (please see our get involved section above) Ofsted rated us GOOD overall and found us very strong in some aspects (please see Ofsted’s website for full report)
Our pre-school offers education and care in a purpose built pre-school section in the primary school, where we create a learning through play environment for children age two years and three months to school age.
We are able to offer funded early years places for 15 hours and the extended 30 hours per week (if eligible) and unfunded places for those who are not eligible as yet or want to pay for extra sessions.
