We are so proud that during 2023, after lots of dedicated teamwork, Priory View Preschool has received Accreditations in ‘The Curiosity Approach’ and ‘Hygge in the Early Years’. We have also worked hard this year to achieve status as a Communication Friendly Setting. These Accreditations will be applied to and continued within Crescent View Preschool too.
When Vicky became the new owner in September 2021, she entered two competitions on behalf of the Pre-School and won an opportunity to embark on a Scandinavian Early Years Accredited Course called ‘Hygge in the Early Years’ (pronounced ‘Hew-guh’ and meaning ‘a feeling of wellbeing, cosiness and contentment’) and another Early years pedagogy called ‘The Curiosity Approach’ (promoting curiosity, awe and wonder in our children.)
Back in 2008, Vicky had the wonderful opportunity to visit Denmark with several Bournemouth colleagues and to explore their ‘forest nursery provision’. Vicky was amazed by the use of natural resources to inspire the children and to make them curious, independent and excited to learn and she now has had the opportunity to embed this special early years environment into our Pre-School provision. Our provision is forever evolving as we continue this wonderful journey of ‘Curiosity and Wonder’.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you let us know immediately of any change of address, telephone, email address or mobile contact details. Could you also please write your child’s name in their coats and shoes, as many children have the same style, size and width-fitting shoes at this age and confusion can easily arise, especially during role-play situations.
Please take a moment to see if this is relevant to you – it may help.
Please ensure that any money due is paid on your child’s first session of the week. Fees are payable weekly or monthly in advance if you prefer. Online bank transfers are preferred where possible for payment of fees and contributions.
Our bank details are as follows:
Account Name: Victoria Peters
Account No: 70113891
Sort Code: 40-18-00
Where this is not possible, please speak to Christine.
We continue to adhere to current Government guidelines. If your child feels unwell please keep them at home. Please phone us and keep us updated. We will advise you on your child’s safe return.
At this time of year the weather can be extremely changeable so we recommend the following:
Half Term Break - Monday 23rd October to Friday 27th October 2023
Last day of Autumn Term - Friday 15th December 2023
First day of Spring Term - Monday 8th January 2024
