Welcome to the online home of East Coker Pre-school Playgroup....

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.

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 Eve 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. 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.

"Children develop positive attitudes and behave well" (Ofsted 2018)

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 settle quickly and feel safe and secure." (Ofsted 2018)

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.

"Staff keep parents informed well of their chidren's progress" (Ofsted 2018)

We are registered with Ofsted to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage

for Learning and Development through play.
