  • How do you help my child settle into the pre-school?
    A happy introduction to the pre-school is important and parents of new children will be expected to stay on their childs first day. When it is time to say goodbye it is helpful to do so quickly as lingering farewells make a child anxious. Staff are on hand to look after a child immediately and no child it left to cry. If we are unable to comfort your child we will contact you, as our main concern is that children feel happy and safe at Selsdon Baptist Church Pre-School.
  • How will I know how my child is doing?
    We review a childs progress and provide written evidence, pictures and photographs to document their development within the Early Years Foundations Stage. Children will recieve their own folder which you may review at anytime and will follow them onto school.
  • What should my child wear?
    Its important for children to express themselves without worring about spoiling their clothes, so we advice sending children wearing old clothes and sensible footwear (trainers or plimsoles).
  • Will my child get a snack?
    Milk/water and a healthy snack will be offered to children during the session.

The best preschool, amazing team!

Please look no further, SBCPS preschool is the best, my little boy in the years he was here has become a confident, happy and clever little boy who is now ready for school. He has grown and learned so much and gained valuable skills which will see him through his early years and beyond! The team are absolutely amazing and I was worried to begin with as he had issues separating from me and I didn’t need to worry at all, it’s like a home from home and loved coming to preschool and we are both sad he has had to leave to start school and saying goodbye was very hard. The SBCPS team are kind and caring, friendly and literally will move heaven and earth to help in any way they can for your child and your family, very patient, nurturing and caring, welcoming, great at teaching skills and helping your child to grow and be the best person they can be! SBCPS are the very best preschool and you will definitely agree!!
