Quality childcare in a flexible and safe environment

Located a short walking distance from Andover town centre, The Scott Centre Preschool is an Ofsted registered preschool in Mead Hedges, just off Salisbury Road. 

The centre is bright and spacious and well equipped for both indoor and outdoor play. It also has a secure outdoor area that your little one will love exploring. We take children aged 2-5 years, and it is not essential that children are potty trained to join us. 

Our dedicated staff team offer activities in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage as well as focusing on the individual interests of the children and their environment.

We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that supports children to cultivate their individual personality. It is our aim to assist children to develop their emotional, social and communicative skills as well as their academic skills such as pre-reading, pre-writing, counting, size and shape recognition, and problem solving. We promote creative skills including music and art, and physical skills to improve their balance, movement and awareness of the world around them.

We have regular meetings with parents and carers so you can see your child’s development and progress with the help of their Learning Journey Book.

Once your children are at school, they can continue their journey with us through our various Breakfast and After School Clubs which cater for most of the Andover schools.
