Our History

Cullompton Pre-school was established in 1971 by a group of mums who thought it was important for their children to be able to meet and learn through play. From these humble beginnings, Cullompton Pre-school has developed into a thriving Pre-school with its own building and a team of specialist trained and experienced staff. We are a non-profit making organisation registered under the Charities Act 1992.

The Pre-school building is situated within the grounds of Cullompton Community College with an entrance from Brook Road. Until April 2011 our building was a 30year old Devon Lady structure with one large room and a kitchen area, the hall contained a cloakroom, storage cupboards and boys/girls toilets.

On the 29th April 2011 we became the proud owners of a fantastic purpose built fully accessible building. We now have three large indoor play rooms, two cloakrooms, a parent room, office, staff room and fully fitted kitchen, laundry and toilet facilities. Outside are two large gardens, our back garden has a new willow dome structure, our Forest School area and we have plans to include a pond and wilderness garden. Our front garden is our largest outdoor space which incorporates an undercover play area, extensive paving for bikes, push along toys and water play. Our grass area is excellent for free play and use of our climbing frame and swings.. We intend to develop this area further by adding a vegetable garden, muddy play area, a secret garden, sensory plants and large accessible musical instruments.
