Due to the current pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to remain closed until September 2020.


We will contact current families as soon as we know what will be happening and are staying in touch with these families through our closed facebook page.


For new families who have their name down already for September we will add you to the closed facebook group so you can start to meet your new friends, their families and the staff. We are hoping to organise short visit appointments on 3rd or 4th September for you to come and have a play and so we can chat to you.


Should you wish to find out more information about us. We have our facebook page Wheatcroft Preschool in St Michaels Youth Hall as well as this website. If you would like to make an enquiry or book your child a space for September 2020 or January 2021 please email or send a message on facebook. We can send you a prospectus and chat via email or I can arrange a time to talk to you about your requirements.
