At Willaston Pre-school, our team are professional, qualified, experienced carers of children, combining a wealth of practical experience, knowledge and skills with a caring, friendly approach. All of our qualified team are paediatric first aiders (with a full 12 hour practical course undertaken every 3 years).

Each child is allocated a key person, whose role is to act as a point of contact for parents and to help your child settle in and track their progress and development, by planning  individualised activities to suit your child’s needs. We provide excellent staff to children ratios, so that your child is well supported and cared for. Our usual pre-school team care for the children throughout the day ensuring there is always a familiar face for reassurance.
