Charlton Pre-school was established in 1967 and has been operating in the village of Charlton, for the past 50 years.
The Playgroup offers educational care for children in the local area aging from 18 months - 5 years inclusive.
We are a registered Charity and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. We are also guided by legislation that has been set up since the introduction of the Children’s Act 2004. We have regular Ofsted inspections; to ensure that we meet the required National Standards which enables us to receive Nursery Education Funding for our 3 and 4 year olds.
As a Charity we are run by a Committee of volunteer trustees who make decisions about the way in which the Pre-school operates and also support and assist the staff in the day to day running of the Pre-school.
