About Us

Welcome to Merton Pre-School

Merton Poppits Playgroup registered in 1999.   We moved to our new setting on 1st June 2015 and changed our name to Merton Pre-school.

We are situated within the grounds of Merton Infants School in Basingstoke.  We have our own self-contained unit attached to the school.  The pre-school is run by a committee which is a mix of current parents, past parents, and school staff.  

We run from one large room which is divided into zones to encourage different opportunities to play.  We have a fully enclosed garden.  We also make use of the school's facilities and have our own Forest School site in the school grounds.  We are fortunate to be close to parks and local shops. 

Sessions run Monday to Friday during Term-time from 9am to 3pm.  We welcome children aged 2 years up until they go to school.  Our staff ratio of 1:4 for under 3 -year -olds, and 1:8 for over 3 are strictly adhered to at all times.

At Merton Pre-School we will, 

M- Motivate  

E- Empower

R-  Recongise individual needs
