Halberton Pre-School, formerly Halberton Playgroup, was opened in September 1969 to provide pre-school education and facilities which were needed in the village and surrounding areas. Its aim is to provide a safe, secure and happy environment with a wide variety of resources and activities where two to five year olds can broaden their experiences and awareness of the world around them.

The Pre-School is a non-profit making organisation and is run by Halberton Primary School's Governing Body. 

We have our own premises located on the site of Halberton Primary School which enables us to have excellent contact with the school. Our qualified staff attend regular training in the form of courses and workshops run by 'Early Years' agencies and all hold a Paediatric First Aid certificate.


Current sessions are held on:

MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, and FRIDAY from 9.00am to 3.30pm

The Pre-School is now registered to accept 2 year old's  (subject to availability).
