​Chacombe CEVA Primary Academy

  • evolve trust



Welcome to Chacombe Pre-School

We are a warm and friendly preschool set in the beautiful village of Chacombe. Our experienced and passionate staff believe that every child's happiness is the most important factor in their learning. Every child is unique and should receive the attention, care and support they need to become, happy and confident individuals.

We are a child-led setting and pride ourselves on getting to know our children and their families well, so we are able to support them the best way we can, giving them the best start to their educational journey. Children learn and play in a calming, natural environment, with natural resources and authentic items to inspire their play.

We have strong bonds with Chacombe primary school. The preschool children frequently interact and socialise with the school children and staff during day to day play on the playground, and at other planned events such as school performances, sports days and many others. This then makes their transition of their next step into school smoother and happier.
