Here at Datchworth Pre-school, we take children from the age of 2 to rising school age with admissions in September and January. We have a limited number of places available for children who are aged 2 before the start of the academic year.

We aim to make sure that our setting is accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community. Our admission policy is underpinned by the principles of equal opportunity,inclusion and anti-discriminatory practice; striving to accommodate the needs of parents, carers and their children. Why not come and have a look at what our Pre-school has to offer? Staff would be pleased to welcome you for a visit, so you can meet the team, see the facilities, the range of activities available and how the sessions are run.
