Stock Pre-School in Essex offers childcare for children between the ages of 2 and 5. We offer a safe, nurturing environment in which each individual child is recognised, valued and supported to achieve their potential through meaningful play experiences. Our free-flowing space from indoors to outdoors ensures those children who learn best through active movement can thrive too. Our wonderful garden is a constant changing canvas supporting the children’s problem-solving skills and nurturing their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness.
We are guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage and have recently been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted. Ofsted say: ‘Staff use their excellent knowledge of each child to plan varied and imaginative experiences that inspire and challenge children to succeed.’ We are proud to have an excellent transition program in place having forged strong links with our community Primary School, ensuring that the children enter their formal education confident and secure individuals.
We would love to show you around our setting and talk you through the many funding options available to you, including 2, 3 and 4 year old funding. If you would like to arrange a visit then please follow the ‘contact us’ link at the top of the page. We look forward to showing you around.
