WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
We are a friendly, well established Preschool that has been caring for the children of Sutton on the Forest and surrounding villages for over 20 years.
We are based at Grey Village Hall on the corner of Main Street and Carr Lane in Sutton on the Forest.
We are open 5 days a week in term time, offering a variety of childcare sessions for children from the age of 2 until school age.
Sutton on the Forest is an attractive village and civic parish in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated 10 miles (16 km) north of the City of York and 5 miles (8 km) southeast of the market town Easingwold.
We are run by a voluntary committee and are a not-for-profit charity with 5 qualified members of staff.
We rely heavily on fundraising and community support to maintain the facility for local families.
We have strong links to the local schools in the area and run a Transition to School session every Monday in the Spring and Summer terms for those due to start any local school the following September. These sessions have been highlighted locally as an example of good practice.
We also run a well attended Baby and Toddler stay and play session which runs alongside the usual Preschool session on Friday mornings. This is open to all parents or carers with a child or children from birth to school age to come along and get to know other families locally over toys, craft activities, a snack for the children and a hot drink for the carer, all ending with a sing-along.
