About Puffin Preschool

We would like to welcome you to Puffin preschool. My name is Vicky Collins and I am the manager and safeguarding officer for the setting. I hold a level 3 in childcare. 

Our Deputy manager, Sarah Furmedge  is also a level 3 and she is our SEN officer.

Our practitioner, Donna Walker is a level 2 and she is our health and safety officer.

We provide a variety of activities and experiences for the children to develop their enquiring active minds and to enable them to become independent and confident learners. 

We give our parents personal handovers about their child’s day. The staff not only support the children within the setting environment but also in the outside environment with outings and visits. 

We also work hard to equip the children in our care for their transition to school. 

What ofsted said about us in November 2017:

“ children demonstrate an exceptional strong sense of security and enjoy warm and close relationships with staff, who give them a lot of time and attention.”


Look forward to meeting you.
