Welcome to our site
Snapdragons is a pre-school for children within Northam, Westward Ho! Appledore, Bideford and surrounding areas. We are based in Northam, Devon, and have been operating in excess of 20 years. We are run by voluntary Directors and governed by a board of community led voluntary Trustees who are passionate about providing a safe, fun and stimulating environment in which children can learn.
Snapdragons is a small, intimate pre-school where each of the children is known individually within the sessions we offer. Our staff also have the ability and time to spend with the parents to talk about each child individually as they are greeted at the beginning of each session and again at the end.
We are able to offer such a high quality and caring service as we have an extremely high ratio of 1 adult to 5 children, with six highly qualified staff members and a maximum of twenty five children per session. This, the volunteers on our committee and our dedicated and friendly staff are what makes us so different.
We enhance and support the development and educational needs of children who are primarily under statutory school age by providing planned, structured and spontaneous activities in a warm and comfortable environment that allows children to move freely and safely between inside and outside play areas.
We also organise events and trips for children and their parents, such as beach and Tarka Trail walks, picnics at Rosemore Gardens, Stars In Their Eyes Evenings and Halloween Parties, which provide an excellent opportunity to socialise within the local community and with everyone involved with our Pre-School.
We are based within close proximity of St. Georges Infants School and St. Margaret's Junior School and are open to children from 2½ years until they join Reception.
