Foxton Preschool has been providing a place to play, learn and socialise for the youngest children of our community since 1978. 

The preschool operates from Foxton Village Hall 5 days a week on a Monday - Friday from 9am - 3.15pm. Children can attend for the full day, or for shorter morning or afternoon sessions, as agreed by parents and staff on what is best for each individual child's needs.  We also offer an option for breakfast club from 8.30am.

We are fortunate to have a fantastic private garden for the children to play in, which we make use of daily whenever possible. We are situated at the heart of the village, close to the recreation ground, the local dovecote and meadow, shop and church, which comes in handy for walks and minor trips out.    

Foxton Preschool has close links with the village primary school, with 'the big kids' coming in regularly to read and play with the children. The staff and children often join the school for special assemblies and events, plus, in their final months at preschool, the children are welcomed into Foxton Primary for weekly sessions, to get them ready for starting in reception in September.  

Foxton Preschool is led by Kelly Dunne, and is ably assisted by colleagues Beth Kewley and Lucy Dobson. Supporting our staff is an active working committee, whose members include parents with children at both the preschool and at Foxton Primary.
