Welcome to the online home of East Coker Pre-school Playgroup....
Getting British Business Online

East Coker is a friendly, happy preschool situated in the picturesque village of East Coker, close to Yeovil.  Based on the playing fields and surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside, children learn in an inspiring outdoor environment supported by caring and highly qualified staff.

"warm and caring staff.... know their children well and plan activities and experiences that excite and challenge them." (Ofsted 2015)
 
We hope you find our website useful and are able to find all the information you need. If you require further information you are always welcome in the setting, or simply contact Kay by phone or e-mail as detailed in the Contact Us page.
 
Your child is eligible to start with us from the age of 2yrs 6 months. We offer trial mornings where you are welcome to attend the setting prior to your child's start date to come and meet the staff and see the group in action. However, If you wish your child to attend from an earlier age you may find our Pre school in neighbouring East Chinnock of benefit as children may attend from their 2nd birthday.  For more information on East Chinnock Under Fives Preschool please use the link at the bottom of this page.

                                "Children are motivated and confident learners" (Ofsted 2015)

As part of the Group's policy to ensure its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any special/additional needs a child may have and work to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and the Special Education Needs Code of Practice (2001).
 
 "Children are happy, behave well and feel secure." (Ofsted 2015)
 
Parents as Partners
 
Our setting recognises parents as the first and most important educator of their children. Parents are regarded as members of our setting and have full participatory rights. These include being valued and respected, being kept informed and consulted, involved and included at all levels. As a community-led, voluntary-managed setting we also depend on the goodwill of parents and their involvement to keep going.  
We are registered with Ofsted to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage
for Learning and Development through play.
 
 
- release your child's potential.
