About us

We are a warm, friendly, committee run preschool with close links to Bumps, Babes & Tots and Old Newton Primary School.

We operate in Old Newton Village Hall and have access to an outdoor area so Children can learn both in the indoors and outdoors learning environment. We are in the very fortunate position to be in a rural location surrounded by fields, woods and a play park. Staff ensure children have opportunities to access these facilities regularly allowing children to learn across the 7 areas of learning within a variety of environments.

During the Spring and Summer Term's the Rising 5's Children visit Old Newton Primary School every week for a 2 hour session. Parents/Carers drop off and pick up their children from Old Newton Primary School and a member of preschool staff will meet the children at the School and stay with them throughout the morning. This allows your child to become familiar with the school environment, staff and layout of the school prior to your child starting school and helps for a smoother transition for your child.
