Dear Parents/Carers,


After careful consideration, the decision has been made to close Yeoford Primary School's preschool provision as of September 2024.


Yeoford is fortunate to have another excellent preschool in the village, Sweetpeas, which offers comprehensive care for children from birth until they're ready to start school. Sweetpeas also provides care from 8am to 6pm and operates both during and outside of term-time, making it challenging for us to compete with this enhanced offering.


We hope to work collaboratively with Sweetpeas, and any other settings, along with parents of potential new starters by offering a full programme of transition/taster sessions. It is our plan to offer weekly afternoon sessions during the summer term where children can come and join our youngest students and their new teachers prior to starting with us in the September (more details will be given nearer the time.)  


Rest assured, we are committed to providing high-quality preschool services for the remainder of this academic year. Our experienced teaching staff and early-years specialists will continue to support your child's development during this time.


Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.


As always, we appreciate your ongoing support and understanding.
