YMCA Kingfisher Preschool in Westbury is an 18 place nursery based on the Bitham Brook Primary School and has its own separate building and outside area. The preschool is registered for 2 – 4 year olds and is open from 8.30am-3.30 pm each day. Inside there is a large well-laid out room with access directly to the outside where there is a rich mixture of play equipment and resources. We make full use of outdoors whatever the weather as well as having access to the adjacent school hall and extensive school grounds.

We are a small and friendly setting and we work hard to foster a warm, family feeling and place a strong emphasis on children’s personal, social and emotional development.

8.30am – 3.30pm Monday – Friday, 38 weeks of the year and following the school terms.

Children bring a packed lunch. A healthy snack is provided each morning and afternoon.

All children aged 3 and 4 are eligible to receive 15 hours free early education each week. We will be offering 30 free hours from September 2017 for working parents who are eligible for the new offer.

Working parents are eligible for an additional 15 hours free early education per week. This takes the total to 30 hours a week for 38 weeks a year. To check if you are eligible please check the Council web site below. At some of our nurseries we are able to spread this offer across the year and offer 22 hours for the 51 weeks.

Eligible two year olds can access 15 hours free and parents can check whether their child is eligible by looking on the Wiltshire Council web site. www.wiltshire.gov.uk

We take a range of childcare voucher schemes, and recommend that you visit the Childcare Choices website to see which scheme will help you best with your childcare fees. https://childcarechoices.gov.uk

Parents say:

“I think it’s unique and managed accordingly”

“I am more than happy with the way all the ladies run Kingfisher. This is my 2nd child to attend. They have made them come on in leaps and bounds. I can’t thank you enough”

“The manager understands the needs of all the children and is happy to discuss any matters”

“I have no doubt at all, that the amazing staff at Kingfisher have changed my shy, timid little girl, into a confident, social and very happy child. I could not be more grateful”

And a new prospective parent recently said “if you can’t trust the YMCA, who can you trust!”
