Who We Are

Long Crendon Pre-School and Out of School Club is a non-profit making community charity run by the Parents’ Committee. It was formed in 1968 and belongs to the families that use it.

The Pre-School provides a stimulating, active and responsive atmosphere, with a supportive and encouraging adult/child ratio of 1-4 for 2-3 year old’s and 1-8 for over 3’s. The Out  of School Club provides wraparound care for children aged 3-11 years old.

Our Ethos

At Pre-School, children learn through play. By play we mean their self-generated, self-directed activity. This may involve the child in huge physical or intellectual struggle and long periods of concentration, but it is still play if engaged in spontaneously from choice. It is the adult’s job to facilitate, encourage, support and guide this play.
