Welcome to Squirrels, a pre-school with a difference! A charity non-profit pre-school that offers quality childcare at a significantly cheaper cost. This rural village pre-school is considerably smaller than the average nursery where children play and thrive in a home from home setting.
Squirrels is lucky to welcome only a small number of children giving them individual EYFS curriculum support combined with old fashioned family values where manners and looking after ourselves and each other are key. Squirrels offers children the opportunity to socialise at nursery in more of a child minder size setting.
Squirrels has a flexible approach to child care provision with no minimum hours catering for individual child and parent needs. Come take a look!

Past And Present Parent Feedback:
“I can’t put my finger on why, but the children feel like squirrels is there’s. This is their space, their happy place”
“School have been impressed with the social confidence and lovely manners my child demonstrated on starting school. We definitely have squirrels to thank for this”
“My little boy was very clingy at playgroup but runs into squirrels without a backwards glance. The ladies at squirrels have a relaxed and informal relationship with parents that make you want to stay for a coffee rather than going to work!”
“The price of a place at squirrels and their no minimum hours policy has allowed me to afford my child to spend a morning at Squirrels a week for some time for myself and get the things I need to get done while my son plays happily with his squirrels friends”
“Squirrels allowed my child to increase his hours very gradually as his confidence built which I think has been crucial to his happiness away from home”
“The new manager at Squirrels has a teaching background and builds EYFS curriculum learning into every activity, the children are learning when they think they are just playing! I’ve even seen her teach EYFS goals whilst pumpkin carving”
