About Us & Fees 

At Little Chestnuts Pre-School we pride ourselves in working with our local community to support children’s development and learning. 
 
Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by our setting helps children to continue to do this by providing all of the children with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development. These include visits to the local allotment, close links with St Margaret’s primary school, and learning about the community that is around us. 
 
 
We also have strong links to Little Hedgehogs, Toppesfield Toddlers Group, which runs in tandem on a Monday afternoon, 1pm until 3pm 
 
We support the Toppesfield, Great Yeldham, Ridgewell and the Hedinghams and surrounding areas for children under 5s educational needs  
 
SEND Offer (part of our SEND Policy) 
We are passionate about supporting children's development including those with special needs. We have a dedicated SENCO key person practitioner and work in partnership with parents through designing a specific learning plan. All our staff are experienced practitioners and have undertaken paediatric first aid and safeguarding courses.  
 
Child absence statement 
As part of our responsibilities for safeguarding children we have to be visual and be aware of children's attendance. 
If your child is going to be absent from preschool please contact us either by phone or text, saying why your child is not attending and when they will be returning. 
If we are not contacted we will contact you or another person you have provided contact details for to obtain this information.If we cannot contact anyone within 2 days or we are not satisfied with the reason or information you have provided we have a duty to contact the safeguarding HUB to record our concerns.
