About Us

This is a small introduction about Teddy Bears Pre- School which is held in Boxford Village Hall on the following days; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am to 3pm and Friday 9am – 12.30pm, term time only.

During mornings sessions, children can enjoy practical activities, songs, musical instruments, dance, nursery rhymes, circle time, adult lead table activities, child led self-selection activities, free flow indoor/outdoor play and story time.

Healthy snacks and refreshments are provided in each session (morning and afternoon).

We run a Lunch Club for all children from 11:30 to 12:30 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays, at an additional charge of £5 per Lunch Club. This gives the children a chance to socialise at meal time and an insight into school practice.

Our afternoon session’s on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12:30 – 3pm have a more structural format, which have come from children’s interests whilst following EYFS.
The children can select resources for activities but are also encouraged to access adult lead activities which include: Multiskills with our P.E coach on a Tuesday. Other sessions may include Gardening and drama sessions alongside science and mathematics.

Our Friday Mornings are for 3-4 year olds only, where we play games through phonics preparing the children for the transition of primary school.

The Teddy Bears pre-school is a quality all-round learning facility for Pre-school children. We offer a number of sessions during the week for children aged 2-5 yrs, plus a toddler group on a Monday morning 9:30am to 11:30am (Panda Club).

We are a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, with high standards in all areas of our operation. We are also inspected by OFSTED.

Through play, we offer the opportunity for children to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. We provide a caring, safe, stimulating and happy environment.

Teddy Bears Pre-school is LCSB registered as a charity and our number is 1024855.

We are very fortunate that we work with the community, this means that we have local companies that engage with us for the benefit and education of the children such as Mini trailblazers, our P.E coach, Debutots a Drama group and Music with Mummy and the local West Berkshire Library who attend our pre-school regularly. The children benefit from our trips to the local community.

*Panda Club is a session for all pre-schoolers and their parents/carers. Come along and enjoy a structured or self-selection activity morning based along Pre-school lines. Experience constructive and creative play or singing and story time and much more!
Cost per session: £2.50 for each family
