Eastbourne Pre-school

Eastbourne pre-School are a local pre-school based with the Eastbourne area of Darlington for more than 20 years.

They are based within Eastbourne Sports Complex and have the exclusive use of the large secure garden area alongside our playroom. They are a 'Messy Nursery' who firmly believe that children learn through play, which will include Mud, Sand, Water, Paint, Glue and Paint and more on an daily basis.

They offer places for the new 30 Hours Funded Places for 3 and 4 year olds and for the 2 Year Old Early Education, for eligible families; as well the Universal Funded places for 3 and 4 year old (both 15 free hours per week). They welcome fee paying families, who may be able to claim part of the fees back through the Childcare Element of Working Families Tax Credits. They will help parents organise any paperwork required for any funded place and also accept childcare vouchers.

They use a large new nursery room created to help develop self-care skills. It will incorporate direct access to the garden space enabling free-flow between the indoors and outdoors by the children.
