Our target has been reached!

March 05, 2017

On behalf of Lavenham Community Council and Lavenham Pre-school, I am delighted to announce that we now have all the funds needed to proceed with the build of our new purpose built Pre-school building adjacent to Lavenham Village Hall. Building work is due to commence mid-March and we plan to be opening our doors to all our little pre-schoolers and their families in September.

All at Lavenham Pre-school are so excited to soon be able to provide the families of Lavenham, and surrounding areas, a new care and educational, early year’s environment. Lavenham Pre-school offers high quality care and expert led early year’s education for the children of our community. Our objectives are:


  • High value, Ofsted inspected education at the start of a child’s learning
  • Excellent care for all local children primarily below statutory school age.
  • To work in partnership with parents to help their children learn and develop.
  • To add to the life and well-being of the Lavenham community.
  • To offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

In our new Pre-school we can extend, and build on, the excellent care we already provide by being able to offer the following;


  • All day, morning or afternoon care, for children from age 2 years to school age.
  • Breakfast and lunch clubs.
  • After school and holiday clubs for early years and school age children.
  • A bright, spacious, airy, purpose built play space.
  • An office and staff room for our dedicated staff team.
  • A separate ‘quiet room’ to provide space to support children in quieter activities or to be used to support children with special educational needs.
  • Large outdoor play area using natural resources to enhance the children’s learning and development.

I would like to thank Lavenham Community Council, Lavenham Parish Council and the Village Hall, for all their support and also to everyone in our community who has supported us through donations, held or attended fundraising events, appeared and bought the ‘Lavenham Revealed’ calendar or offered kind words of support and encouragement…we thank you all. We will keep you up to date on our progress and if you would like to know more please contact me at lavenhampreschool@gmail.com.
