About First Friends Pre-School

First Friends Pre-School is a community playgroup run by a small, experienced team.

We have been part of the village for many years progressing from starting in a classroom of the primary school to our own purpose-built building.

During this time, we have established strong links with the community and village school.

Our Pre- School is designed with a large open plan space with direct access to our outdoor play area. The outdoor area has three specific zones to allow for a variety of opportunities.

The children can safely use bikes and other balancing equipment as well as engaging with wildlife in our environmental area. In this area there is facilities to plant and grow and engage with nature.
