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.

What we have been learning about?
- Our children took full advantage of the opportunity to get down and dirty during International Mud Day – mud angels and puddle jumping were the order of the day.
- We are inviting parents into setting for a literacy & numeracy even on Wednesday 6th July – they will be able to explore some of our wide range of resources alongside their children and take part in group storytime & a book presentation.
- As our School Readiness children prepare to fly the nest they are receiving visits from their new teachers and spending time in their future schools.
