Mickleover Methodist Preschool is a Church based group which has been in existence since 1967. We welcome children from Mickleover and any surrounding areas. The Preschool is registered with and annually inspected by Ofsted and we receive LEA funding which enables eligible 3 and 4 year olds to have free places.
Our aim is to create a happy, caring Environment, where children and parents feel welcome.
In our preschool, experiences and activities are planned to create a free-play environment in which children can develop their early skills. Our emphasis is for the children to learn through play, because we believe play is the most effective way for children to use new learning. They can try out new ideas, pretend to be different people and test new information in their own way.
Every term we work with a central topic or theme. We use the theme to incorporate and build on the interests, knowledge and experience that the children may already have. Children are given the opportunity to look at ideas in a variety of ways. Further details of the curriculum are available.
The preschool uses the specially designed crèche area in the Church Centre and one half of the Large Hall.
It also has a large enclosed outside area which had a soft surface for safe outdoor play.
The Preschool is overseen by a Management Committee
which reports to the Church Council
Opening times are
Monday to Friday 9.15 – 12.15 am
