Our aim is to help the children in our care discover the joy of learning through exploring the wonderful world around them. We believe we can help develop your child’s early potential to the full and give them the self confidence to move effortlessly into school life when that time comes.
We are situated in a wonderfully secluded and quiet location in the village of Uffculme in Devon, where children can play safely and experience an exciting outdoor lifestyle.
The children experience life first hand and spend a lot of time learning outdoors. Fresh air and exercise along with lots of creative play give the children healthy appetites so our prices include homemade snacks and
meals created by our own chefs Tracey, Kelly and Conor, all of whom have a passion for working with children (see our current menus). Our prices also include nappies and formula milk.
Kingwood Childcare and Pre-School was started by Trevor and Claire Dancer almost 5 years ago with the intent of providing children with an environment focusing on healthy life styles and creative play. The entire foundation of the Kingwood ethos is based upon Trevor and Claire’s approach to their own three children using a very simple rule: if it isn’t good enough for their children, it isn’t good enough for yours.
With fourteen years experience as a Primary School teacher it had become clear to Claire that children entering Reception class with a broad set of early life experiences were able to adapt far more readily to their new environment and settle in quickly. This gave them a fantastic start to school life and meant that they could begin integrating and learning straight away.
We would like to offer your child a place at Kingwood Childcare and Pre-School where they can enjoy all the benefits of the early years’ learning culture that we offer. To ensure that each child’s needs are met as they grow we are organised into six separate age groups. Each group is managed by highly qualified and experienced staff. In this way we can ensure your child is enjoying their time with us and receiving the very highest standards of care.
