Speen Pre-School is a small, friendly parent-led pre-school provision, located in a lovely village environment, within the Village Hall. It has a small courtyard outside which is used daily for outdoor play as well as a secure play area in the nearby park which has larger play equipment.

Our last Ofsted Inspection rated Speen Pre-School as 'good' in all areas.

We cater for a maximum of 20 children daily aged 2 - 5 years and have a small staff team who get to know each child well. Children of HM Forces families settle quickly in our welcoming, supportive setting.

We have a wide variety of resources and equipment that we tailor to meet the ages and stages of all children from our younger 2 year olds to our nearly school starters.

Speen Pre-School was originally created as a playgroup over 40 years ago and has developed into a Pre-School with charitable status, becoming a member of the nationally recognised Pre-School Learning Alliance in 1997.

The pre-school provides:

  • Close links with the village community, particularly the school and are involved in local Village life
  • Opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved in running the pre-school as well as having close involvement in your child's development


Forest School

'Staff make good use of their assessments of children's development to plan a broad range of play-based experiences that children find interesting and challenging.'

'Children enjoy their time at pre-school. Staff are kind and welcoming and help children build a positive view of themselves.'
