Tandridge Village pre-school is a happy, secure and stimulating place to be. Set up in 1989, we have over 20 years experience providing children with the highest quality care. We combine the fun of a large, airy village hall with plenty of space, with an exciting outdoor environment. We are recognised in the Oxted area, for the ease with which all our children settle into pre-school life.
At the pre-school we aim to:
- Highlight the importance of building long-lasting and trusted relationships with parents and carers.
- Provide an exciting environment for children in their formative years.
- Ensure well being is at the heart of everything we do.
“The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky.”
This quote from famous nursery educator Margaret McMillan is perfect to illustrate how we feel about our children being outdoors here at TVPS. She maintained that children need space and the outdoors as much as food and water, and we couldn’t agree more!
We are very lucky to enjoy access to St Peter’s School playground, field and trim trail when they are not in use, which provides a brilliant setting for children to play and run in safety.
It is important to note that unless the weather conditions are severe, we go out regardless. If it’s rainy and cold, we wrap up in woolies, wellies and waterproofs and off we go – the children always love it!
Originally a Scandinavian idea, children greatly benefit from the hands-on learning opportunities present in a woodland environment.
