New pre-school activities at Aldingbourne Country Centre

The Aldingbourne Country Centre are pleased to announce that they will be running Pre-School activities from September in their newly decorated soft play area. 

The dedicated pre-school activities room will provide a range of sessions four days a week during the West Sussex school term time.  Activities will include: Art and craft, messy play, music and movement, woodland explorers and story time activities.

These sessions will be around an hour long, running in both the morning and afternoon, and will be specially created for 0-5 years.  They will be inspired by different themes, such as shapes, seasons, cultural festivals and favourite characters/books. Each session will aim to promote children’s physical, communication and social skills, and will be fun, educational, interactive and inclusive.

The focus of each session will be “together time” for parents/guardians and their child/children, with the opportunity to explore, learn and develop together.

Children will take part in play experiences provided by a fully qualified childcare practitioner, who will be on hand to chat to parents and build children’s confidence, imagination and concentration skills.

More information on the new pre-school sessions is available on the website

Spaces are pre-book only, so please visit our website to secure your space today.  Each pre-school session is priced at £6 per child, (£5.50 for members).  If you wish to explore the rest of the Country Centre on your visit, you can purchase a wrist band to visit our onsite activities.
