St Christopher's Pre-School

Government Funded Quality Sessional Care

Established in 1970 St. Christopher's Pre-School is a thriving group catering for pre-school children in Thornhill, Southampton and is situated within walking distance to the local primary schools. The Pre-School is a non-profit making charity who are administered by a volunteer Management Committee made up of parents, ex-parents and interested individuals, therefore all decisions made are for the sole benefit of the children rather than a profit making individual.

We provide care and education for children between the ages of 2 and 4 years. We accept government funded places for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds for 15 and 30 hours per week. Our pre-school is open for 38 weeks per year, term time only. We  have a high adult ratio of 1:4 for two year olds and 1:8 for three and four year olds.

Our aim is to provide a safe, secure and friendly environment in which you are assured your child will learn and grow. We value each child as an individual and understand and support each child to blossom and develop.
