Speen Pre-School is a small, friendly parent-led pre-school provision, located in a lovely village environment, within the Village Hall. It has a small courtyard outside which is used daily for outdoor play as well as a secure play area in the nearby park which has larger play equipment.

Our last Ofsted Inspection rated Speen Pre-School as 'good' in all areas.

We cater for a maximum of 20 children daily aged 2 - 5 years and have a small staff team who get to know each child well.

We have a wide variety of resources and equipment that we tailor to meet the ages and stages of all children from our younger 2 year olds to our nearly school starters.

Speen Pre-School was originally created as a playgroup over 40 years ago and has developed into a Pre-School with charitable status, becoming a member of the nationally recognised Pre-School Learning Alliance in 1997.
