Grow…Explore…Discover

At Merry Go Round Pre-School we believe our preschool to be a magical, joyful place where children are free to run, play, laugh, sing, dance, create, paint, imagine, discover, get dirty and be loved and accepted for who they are. We strive for a happy balance between play, academic and social skills, promoting a friendly, positive first-school experience that will last a lifetime.

Our ethos is to create an environment that gives children a feeling of security and happiness while encouraging curiosity, exploration and experimentation – the foundations of learning. We value the individual child, so we listen to the individual and do what we know is interesting for them, that is how learning takes place and what Merry Go Round is about on a day to day basis.

We offer a safe and secure setting that promotes individuals to be active, engaged in their environment and with others. We pride ourselves on the greater individual attention we are able to give all children to ‘grow’ in confidence- ‘explore’ the world and ‘discover’ new learning and lasting friendships.

A happy child is a happy learner.

Merry Go Round Pre-School has been established for over 46 years and is based in the beautiful grounds of Stokenham Area Primary School. Merry Go Round is open to all children aged between 2 years to 5 years from throughout the area with children currently attending from across the South Hams including Stokenham, Chillington, East Portlemouth, Prawle, Blackawton, Kingsbridge and Slapton and many more villages in the area.

Merry-Go-Round is OFSTED registered and were last inspected in January 2015.  The report highlighted that “the children are happy, secure and explore confidently, staff skillfully extend and carefully engage in the children’s learning, the staff build warm and caring relationships with the children”.
