Little Popples Pre-School is open from Monday – Friday 8:45am – 3:00pm.

Our Pre-school is situated in the heart of a village community and offers exceptional Early Years experience for children aged 2-4 years. 

We are situated next to Newton Poppleford Primary School and managed by the school governing body.  There are many opportunities for the children to explore indoor and outdoor space providing play areas on site and within the school grounds.  We are able to use the Primary School forest school area on a weekly basis and then the main hall for a P.E session.  These sessions and our partnership with the school support children’s transition into the reception class.

Our building consists of two main playrooms, a small kitchen area where the children are encouraged to prepare snack daily and outdoor space with a ‘mud kitchen’.

As a setting we successfully work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that all children have a relevant and high-quality curriculum built upon their strengths and interests, respecting individuality and celebrating achievement.

We have an experienced team of qualified practitioners ensuring a high standard of care and dedication to the development of your child.

This website aims to give an overview of our services and philosophies.  You will find all the information you need regarding the day to day running of the pre-school, the curriculum and any information you may need for the future.  Little Popples Pre-school runs under the policies of Newton Poppleford Primary School - this includes GDPR.
