About us

Saltdean Preschool first opened its doors to young children in the 1960s as a mother and toddler group. It has since evolved into a community preschool and offers sessions for children from age 2-5 years.  We are a registered charity (No. 1028876) managed by a committee of parents and run as a non-profit organisation.

We are committed to enhancing the development and education of children under statutory school age. We aim to support and help each child to reach their full potential by providing high levels of care and education within a nurturing environment.

Our objectives are to provide a child friendly environment that is safe, secure, caring and stimulating and to provide an atmosphere where children feel happy.  To promote children’s social, intellectual and physical development through play and structured activities. To encourage children to develop independence, self-confidence and self-esteem. To enhance the development and education of children through play and learning so that children are prepared for school life.

We work closely with families and offer support where necessary. We actively encourage children from all walks of life and promote equality and diversity by welcoming every child and family into our setting regardless of race, religion, culture, ability or gender.
