Meet Us

Claydon Pre-school (formerly Claydon Playschool) has been in the village looking after children since 1978. Back then, we held this in the village hall. This obviously, over the years, presented a problem for space as the school became more popular and more children started attending and our numbers grew. Something had to be done, and lots was done!

Fund raising began, from beetle drives to bingo evenings (“two little ducks, 22”) to help contribute towards the cost of building the community centre to which we then moved to. Again, after time, our needs changed as our popularity grew and our vision for a dedicated building, purpose built became clear, and through more fundraising and government grants we finally got funding for our wonderful new building which we moved into in October 2010.

​I couldn't be happier

I couldn’t be happier with Claydon Preschool. My eldest daughter went here a month after she turned two and I really believe it was the best preparation for primary school. Our youngest attends now and literally skips to school. She comes home happy and wanting to tell us all that she has been up to. Great to have someone else so messy play too! It really has helped their speech, confidence and social skills. The tapestry online journal is a great tool they use.
