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 some 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 can make use of the school's facilities, and are close to a park suitable for the children who attend.

Sessions run Monday to Friday during Hampshire 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.

We aim to provide your children with a safe, happy, friendly and stimulating environment.  Our goal is to ensure children learn to build on their independence, and social skills, in order to develop their skills in all areas of learning.
