Walberton Pre-School runs from Walberton Village Hall where we are supported by a fantastic and enthusiastic staff team. We are open for morning sessions on Monday - Friday during school term times, from 9:15am - 12:15pm and follow on sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 12.15pm - 3.15pm.
Walberton Pre-School is owned and managed by Helen Baxter and Mandy Foulds, who both live in Walberton. We have run pre-school together for over 20 years and have seen over 600 children come and go…! We are privileged to have worked with many and varied children and families.
Our families come from a wide area and children leave us to move onto their local ‘big school’. These schools include Walberton & Binsted CE Primary School, Barnham School, Slindon CE Primary School, Aldingbourne School, Eastergate CE Primary School, Bury CE School School, St Philips Catholic Primary School and Arundel CE Primary School (ACE).
We are registered by Ofsted, Registration No. EY281732. We were last inspected in January 2020 and were given the grading "Good". The full report is available to view online, via the Ofsted website by clicking here.
