About Us

“Staff have an excellent understanding of the needs of children. They use highly effective systems to monitor children’s progress… As a result, children make outstanding progress in their learning”
“Excellent use is made of the outdoor learning environment. Children are able to move freely between the inside and outdoor areas, with weekly forest school activities enriching their learning experiences”


Dinton Pre-School is unique in its setting and character. In 1975 the Pre-school opened in Mrs Clark’s living room with a handful of children, gradually over the years the school expanded and moved in to purpose built premises. 

The Pre-School continues to grow and flourish, but we pride ourselves in knowing each individual child and their family, all staff, parents, children and siblings enjoy this friendship and security.

Our Mission Statement

Intent – What are we trying to achieve here?

For children to be happy, independent, caring, confident and keen communicators who develop a ‘can do’ attitude. We want our children to see the wonder of the world and to be adventurers and investigators

Implementation – How are we going to deliver this?

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and use this to plan the activities and experiences we provide for the children based on their interests and next steps in learning and development.

We provide outdoor learning opportunities to support children’s well-being, encourage risk taking and develop curiosity. We use real tools and open-ended resources to develop children’s independence, self confidence and creativity.

Impact – What difference is this making to our children?

Developing well in all areas

Able to show resilience and determination

Dinton Pre-School has chosen to undertake the Bristol Standards Quality Assurance program. This allows all staff to reflect on how we may improve the setting with each submission and develop our practice.
