A Little About us.
Toad Hall Pre-school started life as a small privately owned playgroup in the mid sixties. Since then it changed venue and leadership a couple of times and eventually settled in St. Gabriel’s Church Hall in 1979 where it became officially know as Toad Hall Playgroup. Sue Fitzsimmons took over as play leader in 1982 and in 1995 the decision was taken to be known as Toad Hall Pre-School. Major refurbishment took place in 1997 and we happily moved across to the bright new hall where we are today, Sue retired in December 2010 and Nicky Blunt took over as manager in January 2011.The group has slowly evolved from that small privately run playgroup into the thriving 60+ place community pre-school who welcome you today, managed by a committee of parents and supported by a very experienced team of eleven staff.
Toad Hall has built up an enviable reputation of providing excellent care for our under 5’s, placing strong emphasis on their social and emotional development. As such, we have been recognized by OFSTED as an OUTSTANDING provider for three consecutive inspections.
