About the Preschool
Silverton Preschool Playgroup aim to provide for your child/children an educational and learning atmosphere as laid down by the DfES Early Years Foundation Stage, to encourage development that is both progressive and continuous (in all areas). We provide equipment that is stimulating, educational and up-to-date. We feel that these combined with our happy and safe environment will enable your child/children to achieve their full potential preparing them for the future educationally and socially.
We know from our experience as providers of Pre-school education that children of Preschool age “learn through play”.
