Little Poppets

Little Poppets Pre-School opened in September 2012 and is situated in Tudor Hall, next to the Library. This setting has sessions running between 9.10am and 12.10pm, Monday to Friday.

Natalie Frederick is the Manager and she is supported by Suzie who is the Deputy Manager at this setting.

There has been a Pre-School based in Tudor Hall for over 60 years. We were lucky enough to have been given use of the premises when we were looking to expand 7 years ago. Laura (Owner of both Pre-Schools) even attended Tudor Hall Playgroup when she was two years old. Since taking control of the site we have redesigned the garden area and had astroturf laid. Recently the garden / fencing has also been extended and this has provided a tarmac area for the children to use bikes, scooters etc.

The staff at Little Poppets and Poppets work very closely together as a team and on some occasions the two settings will combine for special events. In the past we have had an animal farm visit Poppets and the children from Little Poppets attended that setting to join in the fun. We do also have other parties / events during the year and the children enjoy visits to other local amenities, such as the shops and library. 
Our last Ofsted visit was conducted on the 15th February 2019.
