Little Den Preschool has been registered since 1983. We are a non-profit making charity run by a parent committee. We are based in The Den Scout Hut on Chawton Park Road, Alton, Hampshire. Little Den Preschool is situated within a residential area, within walking distance to local schools. We have a large carpark at the front. Access to the building and large enclosed garden is via a ramp.
We are open term times from 8.30am until 2.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am until 1pm on Fridays. We have various collection times throughout the day.
We have a friendly, dedicated and qualified team of staff. We offer places to children from 2 years to 4 years. Little Den Preschool receives funding to provide 15 hours free early education for children aged two, three and four years; 30 hours funding is available for eligible families. We welcome children of all abilities, nationalities and ethnic backgrounds.
Our curriculum is based on The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) . We offer a friendly, safe and secure environment for your child to develop their full potential and be ready to enter school with confidence. Your child’s learning and development is supported through planned opportunities and experiences. Little Den children learn through play, creativity and social interaction with well resourced areas of learning in our spacious indoor and outdoor environments.
We treat each child as an individual, observing, assessing and planning for their learning to provide new experiences and challenges. We encourage parent partnership and active parent participation so that children are fully supported through their learning journey.
