At Shipston Pre-School we aim to create a caring, secure and stimulating environment where all children will enjoy learning, achieve success and feel valued and respected.

We are committed to ensuring children within our care are happy, confident learners who are nurtured as individuals within a fun, safe and homely environment.

We aim to foster each child’s uniqueness and individuality as they work towards the common goals of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

We want children and their families to make friends, be understanding and show respect for themselves and each other by being kind, considerate and caring.

At Shipston Pre-School we are committed to providing a high level of care and education for all children. We believe that quality is not a ceiling that is reached, or a line that is crossed, but it is a continuous and ongoing journey of improvement.
