Encouraging Curiosity at Local Pre-School

A belief that adventure is never far away underpins the ethos at Southville Primary School's Pre-school. From feeding the chickens to digging out the vegetable patch, the children are encouraged to explore the outdoors and link their learning to real life. The school believes in a hands-on approach that develops and encourages curiosity, creativity and independence. Many of the children continue their learning journey into Reception at the school, building on their learning and maintaining lasting friendships. If you would like to meet the staff and look around, please contact the school office.

Pre-school admissions are through the school office - To arrange a visit and reserve a place please call 0117 3772671
