Welcome to Abbey 345 Preschool

Abbey 345 Preschool is a committee run Charitable Incorporated Organisation, that has been providing Pre-school care and education within Crowland, Lincolnshire for over 30 years. We are situated within the grounds of South View Primary School, in modern, purpose-built premises.

Our ethos is for children to learn through play and exploration in surroundings where all families are welcomed, valued and enabled to become part of our learning community. Our role is to provide a safe, stimulating environment where, with the support of our highly qualified, experienced and enthusiastic staff, children can develop at their own individual pace.

Thorough knowledge of a range of Theorists (including Piaget, Bruner and Vygotsky) and Early Years Approaches (such as Froebel, Te Whariki and Reggio Emilia) underpins all our practice. This enables us to provide exciting opportunities to engage and extend learning with all our children whatever their interests and enthusiasms.  Children are offered a wide variety of activities and situations in which they will be encouraged to use their imagination and advance their social skills.
