Cost Free High Quality Preschool Education at Ashley Hill Focused on the best for children and their education

The Buzz Preschool is a totally unique offering within the Hopes & Dreams family.

Designed solely for the benefit of children in their preschool year.

Ideal for stay at home parents, home based workers or those working part time who want their child to be ready for school with children who will be in their Reception class, making starting school so much less scary.

The term time only sessions have been designed to allow your child to enjoy all of the benefits of our exciting fun sessions whilst still spending quality time with you, and possibly their older siblings, every day and throughout the school holidays. This format has been highlighted by educational studies as being optimal for the children.

The Buzz Preschool offers a dedicated high quality school based term time preschool experience. With a maximum of just 24 children and plenty of indoor and outdoor space the children will benefit from a wide range of play and learning opportunities under the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

The provision is led by a small team of qualified and experienced Early Years professionals who have all previously worked within the Hopes & Dreams family and have delivered the high quality care and learning that Hopes & Dreams is known for.
