We are a small Pre-school in the village of Altarnun, you can find us attached to Altarnun Primary School. We have a small dedicated team of four staff members. Our setting is a lovely bright environment with a very welcoming outside area, with a giant sand pit, raised beds for growing plants and flowers, mud kitchen, climbing equipment and mark making areas. We also have full access to the school's playing field, including a woodland area and climbing equipment. We have close links with the adjoining school and join them for special occasions such as Harvest Festival and the annual Nativity. We are a friendly team with a parent led and hands on committee.
