Quintrell Downs Preschool
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We are a small village pre-school who provide a wide variety of activities - paintings, crafts, drawing/mark making, water/sand, physical activities, maths, stories and songs, we have freeflow play both indoors/outdoors.

 Our preschool is in a large village hall with activities on a low level so the children can indepentantly explore and learn.

Our outdoor area is small, but consists of sensory garden boxes inc, pond, beach, woodland, and herb and vegetable patch.
