Welcome to
Mendlesham Pre-school

Situated in Mid-Suffolk, Mendlesham Pre-school is a warm, friendly and caring setting for children aged 2 - 5 years. Children play, learn and socialise together under the care of qualified and experienced staff.


We are open Monday to Friday, 8.45am - 3.30pm during term times.

Our session times are:
Morning – 8.45am to 11.45am

Lunch Club – 11.45am to 12.30pm (held with the Primary School)

Afternoon – 12.30pm to 3.30pm



Our background


Mendlesham Pre-school first began life in 1972 as the village playgroup. Since that time it has moved several times and steadily expanded in size and length of opening hours. We now operate from Mendlesham Community Centre Small Hall. This is a modern, warm and clean setting.


The Pre-school is a charitable organisation run by a volunteer management committee. We greatly value the input of parents both to help on the committee and in fundraising events. We also encourage parents to volunteer to help in the occasional session at Pre-school – it gives parents an extra insight into what is going on, helps our staff and encourages the children no end!

Fees and funding

Main session - £9.60

Lunch Club - £2.60 (plus lunch - please supply packed lunch or order a hot dinner)

Fees are paid termly or half termly as required. A bill will be issued by the treasurer in accordance with the sessions you have pre-booked. Other options are available on request.


All money (cash or cheque) should be provided in a sealed envelope, clearly marked.
All cheques should be made payable to ‘Mendlesham Pre-school’.


Our policies and principals

The Early Years Foundation Stage

There are four principles that underpin the Early Years Foundation Stage:

1. a unique child

2. positive relationships

3. enabling environments

4. learning and development

Within our setting, we aim to provide a caring and communication rich, play based learning experience. We acknowledge that when children are constantly stimulated in such a safe and secure environment, it provides the optimum conditions for learning and development.


We understand the importance of allowing children to take things at their own pace.
