Freshford Pre School

We give children opportunities to follow their fascinations and discover their capabilities, by planning our learning journey with them.


Activities are designed around children’s individual needs and support their transition to school life. For children to have the confidence to explore and grow, they need to feel secure and know that their voice matters.
