The Building

Yateley Community Pre-School has been established for over 30 years. Over these years we have had a variety of homes. In May 1997 we moved to our own building – achieved through intensive fund raising by parents, staff and committee – sited at Yateley Infants School, Cranford Park Drive, Yateley. After 10 years of use the refurbished porta cabin was demolished in July 2007 to make way for a brand new purpose built nursery building owned by Hampshire County Council, to whom we pay rent.

The building consists of a light and comfortable play area incorporating a messy activity section, permanent role play scenes, a quiet area for our book corner and computer and various activity tables including a daily adult led activity. Children are able to access toys and equipment throughout the sessions, offering child initiated learning. The walls of the room are always bright and colourful and they are used to display the children’s work based on specific themes, as well as a picture wall for children to put up their own pictures. The building has its own toilets (including an accessible toilet) and is accessed by a ramp.

Outdoor Facilities

We have a zoned fenced garden area for the children to play in, with an area of tarmac, grass, bark and gardening area. We have tractor tyres of mud which the children enjoy, but they may get messy!! The children are able to free flow in and out all year round except during very inclement weather.
