Alveston pre-school heading to primary site
AN Alveston pre-school is moving to a nearby primary school so youngsters can benefit from better facilities.
St Helen’s Little Stars is currently based at the Jubilee Hall in Greenhill Road but will soon be making the short journey across the road to St Helen’s Primary School.
There are just legal agreements to sign and some renovation work to be finished before the move can take place atome point before the end of the summer term.
The school site has access to woodland, the school grounds, a pond and an all-weather sports pitch.
A spokesperson for the preschool said: “Working in partnership with the school will be a great benefit to families and in supporting pre-school children in their transition up to reception class.
“Moving onto the school site will also see the pre-school aligning their opening hours to school, making it a great option for parents.
“There has been a lot of hard work by the staff (of both pre-school and school), the Little Stars Committee and the School Governors. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been working behind the scenes to get us to this stage.”
School head teacher Andy Spens said: “We are really excited about the pre-school moving onto the school site.
“We’re passionate at St Helen’s about teaching, learning and enriching children’s opportunities and we’re looking forward to working closely with the pre-school, ensuring the best possible start to the children’s education and creating a smooth transition into the school.”
