Angmering Village Preschool is a small, traditional style preschool situated in the heart of Angmering Village, established since 1995. We offer a very friendly welcome for you and your child and pride ourselves on getting to know our children and their families, building strong relationships with them.
We are situated in the Village Hall on Station Road. We use the main hall which is a bright spacious room with plenty of space. There are construction, small world and art trollies that allow the children access to a wide range of equipment and a lovely role play kitchen that is especially popular with our younger children. Books are always available in our quiet area to share with an adult or to look at independently. Our large secure garden has an all-weather surface area and a lawned area so we can have outdoor play daily, whatever the weather!
There are three small sheds housing sand and water toys, construction toys and a role play house which enable the children to independently choose and access what they wish to play with. We also have a very popular mud kitchen, music wall and lots more equipment to inspire the children’s play.
We operate from a split site to enable us to be able to offer longer hours. Our afternoon sessions are at the Scout Headquarters, Rectory Lane, Angmering (just around the corner from the Village Hall). The hall here is bright and spacious and we have similar trollies here too, so the children can access a wide range of equipment independently, to play on their own or together with their peers or an adult. The Scout Headquarters is situated on the edge of Fletcher’s Field and there is a public play area that we use. We also take the children out for walks round the local area, to buy snack from the shops or to choose books from the library.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and the children have various “Small Group Opportunities” throughout the day to read stories using a range of props, science experiments, activities to build the children’s fine motor skills, early phonics to build the children’s listening and concentrating skills in preparation for school, musical activities and lots more.
We have a fantastic library with specially made ‘story bags’ that children are able to borrow to share at home. These have puppets that help engage the children to retell the story, building their language and comprehension skills. We also have ‘busy bags’ to borrow that enable the children to build their fine motor skills in preparation for writing in fun ways. For those moving on to school, there are maths and phonic packs to share together at home. Sensory bags with visual, audio and tactile resources to explore are also available.
We look forward to meeting new families and to showing you around our preschool.
Come and see us soon!!
