About St. Martins Pre-School


Who We Are

St. Martins Pre-School provides quality care and education for all children aged 2 years through to commencing primary school. Funding is available, subject to eligibility, for children aged 2, 3 or 4 years.

We are open 38 weeks of the year. Our term time follow the pattern of the local schools.

We are open from 8:55- 2:55 with two sessions a day 8:55- 11:55 and 11:55- 2:55.

St. Martins Pre-School is located in our own purpose built unit with a superb secure, large outside area with a secure field where the children have lots of fun running, investigating and exploring. We pride ourselves on playing outside, whatever the weather, ensuring that children are suitably dressed for the weather conditions.

The unit is located at the end of Cheriton Primary School field, with private access.

We work closely with St. Martins Primary School and Cheriton Primary School.

Our pre-school is regularly inspected by OFSTED and works closely with KCC.

We follow the foundation stage curriculum by providing fun, interesting and stimulating activities planned around the child's areas of development and interests. Each child is treated as an individual, and given the opportunity to play, socialise and learn with others.

We have a wide range of age-appropriate resources that are carefully planned to allow the children to have the freedom to explore, learn and, most importantly, have fun both inside and out!

Parental Involvement St. Martins Pre-School


At St. Martins we work hard to ensure that we have a close working involvement with our parents and families. Parents are welcome to stay with their child as long as required to ensure that their child settles well.

Parents and families are welcome to join us in the sessions as volunteer helpers. Each year the pre-school holds a variety of different events for the children and their families to enjoy. These include our Christmas nativity play, sports day and parties. We invite parents to come in and meet with their child’s key person to discuss their progress three times a year, however, parents are always welcome to discuss their child at any time.




Staffing St. Martins Pre-School

The manager and the deputy have foundation degrees in Early Childhood and have Advanced SENCO qualifications.

All staff are qualified or are working towards level 3 and have many years experience of childcare. We bring unique qualities to the team and attend regular updates to our training.

Each child will have an allocated Key Person who will continually observe, record and plan appropriate and purposeful activities for their key child, so that they can achieve their next stages of learning in fun and enjoyable activities. Your child’s key person will collate all this information in their learning journal and share with you on a regular basis. We appreciate that parents know your child best and value your support in working together to ensure that we provide your unique child with individual support to enhance their development.
