About Us


Seale Village Pre-school


We meet Early Years Foundation Stage requirements for staffing ratios, and qualifications to ensure we offer high quality childcare for you and your little ones.


The management team are highly qualified at degree level. Pre-school Practitioners are qualified to a minimum of Level 3 in Childcare and Education.

First aid

All of our Pre-school practitioners have full paediatric first aid training.

Safe environment and staff

Our environment, both indoors and outside are fully risk assessed, as are any outings and adventures outside of our registered premises - for example, visits to our forest school site and our daily walks in the countryside and village.

All our staff and  any students and volunteers hold an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.


We are registered with Ofsted to take children from 1 to 5 years old. We had our first Ofsted inspection in September 2019 and received a GOOD outcome. Please see here for our Ofsted information.
