Appleton Thorn Pre-school

Ofsted registered Pre-School providing childcare for children aged 2-5 years.

We are open from Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 3:00 pm, enabling us to offer 10 x 3 hour sessions per week during term time. 


We offer flexibility wherever possible, for example, not sticking exactly to session times; accepting drop off and collection part way through sessions.


We have an established relationship with Appleton Thorn Primary School's Link Club, who take children aged from 3 years old and open from 7:.45 am - 6:00 pm.

We also have a local childminder on the staff team who takes children from 7:00 am, enabling us to provide wrap around care for parents working longer hours.
