School Readiness Fridays

Our Fridays are exclusively available to children in their final year with Preschool. They mirror the structure of the school day and we focus on the knowledge and skills that will give your child the best possible start to their school education. Through a planned program of activities, we aim to develop the children’s confidence and independence as well as giving them a taste of the kind of things they will be learning in school.

Old Dalby Preschool’s First Steps Sessions

Children from 18-24 months

Old Dalby Preschool welcome children aged 18-24 months to join the older children for a play.

These relaxed pay as you go sessions will be a great introduction to Preschool life and allow the younger members of our community to make friends with and learn from our older children.

Parents are welcome to stay or could use the time for a well-earned rest. 

Days and times are dependant on child numbers, if you are interested please contact Leonie who will be able to provide more information.

£12.50 a session.

Limited spaces available.

We have some exciting news... We have been picked to participate in a new scheme devised by the council to support boys and language development. We will have an initial visit, attend two training events and then have an evaluation visit. We are excited to find out more about this area and implement strategies into our practice.


We are pleased to announce that we have yet again achieved our health tots accreditation. The setting had to meet a list of criteria with regard to physical activity, emotional well-being and healthy eating to gain this award.
