Little Swans Pre-school is managed by a voluntary committee of parents. Originally registered in 1997, the pre-school moved to its present location, based within the grounds of Westcliff School in Dawlish in January 2006. The facilities include two main playrooms, with attached kitchens, a small library, which can be used as a quiet area, an outdoor play area and toilets. There is a ramped disability access to the setting.
The pre-school is registered to provide places for children aged 2 to 5 years. The pre-school supports children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and children who speak English as an additional language. It operates Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm, term time only.
There are currently eleven members of staff employed, all of whom are appropriately qualified. The setting is registered on the Early Years Register. The pre-school staff work closely with the early years advisory teacher and have very good links with Westcliff and Gatehouse primary schools.
Our last Ofsted inspection (under EY315587) was in February 2016 and concluded that we provide outstanding quality childcare. Please ask if you wish to see a copy. In 2017 we changed our charity structure to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and our Ofsted number became EY550386.
