Preschool About Us

About our Preschool in Queen Camel

Our preschool was established in Queen Camel near Yeovil in 1982 and now operates from  purpose built facilities as part of the village primary school. We offer places to children from the age of 2 and most of our children go on to Countess Gytha Primary School in Queen Camel as well as to other primary schools in the area.

We are open Monday to Friday from 09.00am to 3.30pm and our location at the school provides ample parking and buggy park for parents as well as good access to a wide range of facilities including the school hall. We  have our own dedicated classroom, kitchen, toilets and outdoor area specifically designed to support our preschool age activities.

Our warm and well lit classroom is set out to be as open plan as possible, providing good communication and interaction between children using the distinct play areas within the room.


We encourage parents to contribute a piece of fruit for the sessions their children attend for fruit snack time. Milk and water are provided by the preschool. Parents need to provide a lunch-box for any lunch sessions or order hot meals via ParentPay.
