SOUTH Zeal Pre-school has closed as a parent committee run pre-school and a new pre-school Little Beacons has opened as part of South Tawton Primary School.

The pre-school is still based in the Victory Hall but is now governor led by the primary school and overseen by school staff in liaison with pre-school colleagues.  

The pre-school, which currently has 44 children enrolled, is now able to offer all day sessions rather than just morning or afternoon sessions that were available before the primary school took over.

The pre-school also benefits from being able to share the primary school’s resources, such as the outdoor space.

The pre-school works closely with teachers and staff at the primary school and the early years children are able to visit the early years class at the primary school.

‘Little Beacons is a great addition to our school and helps build important links between the younger and older children as well as sharing good practise and helping children’s transition to school.’
