About the employer

About Pollington Preschool:

Opened in 1976, the original Pollington Cum Balne playgroup was operated from Pollington Village Hall. The playgroup led by dedicated members of the Pollington Community relocated into a classroom at Pollington-Balne C.E. Primary school.  This was where it stayed until finally, 40 years later in October 2016, we moved into a brand-new purpose built EYFS Hub, situated at the back of Pollington-Balne Primary school.

Pollington Preschool has been graded OUTSTANDING in all areas by OFSTED (February 2018) due to our practitioners supporting children to live their dreams in a truly special way. A place to belong

Open from 7am until 6pm, we offer many different play sessions including breakfast, evenings and holidays all based your childcare needs.

But don’t take our word for it come and see for yourself.  We would be more than happy to show you around and extend a warm glittery welcome to you to meet our fantastic team...

What we can offer:

  • Warm, welcoming and fun learning
  • Adults who truly love their job teaching young children how to soar through the Early Years Curriculum expectations
  • Natural, curious play-based experiences
  • Awe and wonder in a truly inspirational environment
  • Individual learning experiences for every child
  • A new, challenging and exciting adventure everyday
