'A place to learn, a place to play, listening to what children say.'
Established in 2005, Zion Community Preschool is located in the heart of Frampton Cotterell and in the centre of the community. We are situated within walking distance of several local primary schools, and we welcome all children from age 2 until they go to school.
We are a non-profit Preschool, ran by our Parents Committee. Being ran by parents, Zion's ethos is always child focused, giving parents the ability to be involved and hands on in many aspects.
Our children enjoy a secure outdoor play area, along with a staffed healthy 'snack bar.' We centre our learning on themes through activities such as drawing, reading or cooking, and we also have a 'Book of the Month' where we focus on the theme, and encourage the children's own interests. Importantly, we also believe our children thrive on learning through play too!
Nursery Grants are available + we also accept
