About Us

At Witheridge Childcare @ The Hive we strongly believe that children learn best when they have high self-esteem, therefore, we work very hard to ensure that every child is valued as an individual, that their differing qualities are recognised and appreciated by the staff, any other helpers and the other children.

We are located behind the Witheridge Primary School site, with ample parking to the rear of the site adjacent to the Sports Club thus ensuring a traffic free zone to drop off your children. Our location on the school site promotes our interaction with Class 1/reception and our status as a Partnership Foundation Stage Unit; through careful planning our pre-school age children are able to interact on a regular basis. There is no obligation for children attending Witheridge Pre-School to attend the Witheridge Primary School.

We are a registered charity affiliated to the national Pre-School Learning Alliance, overseen on a day to day basis by a committee of parents/carers, both present and past.

Our newly acquired premises will enable us to offer care for under 2's in their own dedicated room with carefully selected resources promote their development and well-being. Our pre-school sessions take place in the main room which has a readily available covered outside area. The additional space will also allow our after school care children, the Buzz Club, the opportunity to relax and unwind in a quiet environment before participating in activities offered in the main room.
