Thurston Pre-School


  • Our pre-school welcomes children from the age of 2 to 5 every term and has a highly qualified group of staff on hand to help each child begin their learning journey in a fun and active way.
  • We will be running in the Cavendish Hall in Thurston, near Bury St Edmunds term time only until September 2014. Then we are moving to our own brand new building which means a more permanent area, more opening times and hopefully breakfast and after school clubs too.
  • We have many different activities available to engage every child and can be child specific for every different session, all following the current EYFS framework. 
  • We actively encourage parents to 'drop in' to see their children play and have regular open coffee mornings where parents, grandparents and carers are invited to come and have a play with the children and maybe speak to the staff about their child, or just enjoy watching them play and learn.
  • We have an enclosed outdoor area equipped with outdoor ride-ons, sand pit, playhouse, digging area etc where the children can use our equipment in a safe and controlled way whilst learning about what they are doing and interacting with the people and world around them.
  • We strive to deliver the best childcare and education by ensuring that all our staff have in-depth knowledge and understanding gained through continuing professional development and higher-level qualification training. We continually seek advice and support to develop knowledge, skills and practice from the County Council, Ofsted and other educational sources.
