Thank you for your interest in Shurdington Pre-School, a community run Early Years child care centre in the village of Shurdington, near Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Meet the Team

Shurdington Pre-School is a ‘pack away’ Pre-school sharing a much used hall with other groups in the community.We also operate as a setting of best practice, working with the Gloucestershire Early Years Team in supporting other settings in the county in their own journey to excellence.

Access to the hall and garden is all on ground level and entrances are wide and secure. We are fortunate to have a large hall and extensive garden space in which we have recently developed TWO  ‘outdoor learning gardens’ with funds from the GrassRoots Community Foundation , Grants from GCC and the Echo as well as community fundraising.These two gardens: one for our 2 yr olds in Caterpillers and one for our 3 & 4 yr olds in Butterflies has enabled us to offer FreeFlow for the majority of the childrens time in session and has greatly improved our Enabling Environment. Children will always have the option to play outside: irrespective of the weather.
