Following the government announcement that all schools and nurseries will close, we must regretfully confirm that Meadow will also be closed from Friday 20th March.
If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the critical sectors listed by the government and have no other childcare option, please contact us on 07484863027, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If it is at all possible for your child to be looked after at home, this is the best place for them to be.
We would like to extend our very best wishes and sentiments of support to you all at this very challenging time. We are sure we will see you all soon under much happier circumstances.
Any updates will be posted on the website, Facebook page, and front door noticeboard.
Meadow Pre-School Committee
WELCOME TO MEADOW PRE-SCHOOL
Meadow has been providing a welcoming, happy and safe environment for pre-school children for nearly forty years when it started as a playgroup.
Meadow is a community pre-school and registered charity managed by a Committee of volunteer parents.read more There is a lot of parental involvement at Meadow; the Committee runs fundraising events throughout the year, and many parents become involved in one way or another, be it with the garden or helping at a fair, for example.
As a charity the emphasis must be placed on accessibility rather than profit when setting fees, and as such Meadows is truly a community pre-school. Money is raised by the Committee to provide new and improved equipment and resources for the Pre-school and to improve the physical environment. read more
Meadow through the year
Learning about our local environment is extremely important, so we do take the children on regular outings to Watts Meadow, the castle, the allotments, the library and to curriculum-focused places, for example, the doctor’s surgery. We will notify parents and carers of major outings.
Every year we have an Easter Egg Hunt and Sports Day. Older children attend a Teddy Bears Picnic at Rochester Castle or on the Esplanade in the summer term whilst the under 3s have a picnic in the garden. At Christmas time we always have a Christmas play and a children’s party.
At the end of the school year, we hold a Leavers Ceremony for those going on to Primary School to celebrate their achievements at Meadow and to wish them well at their new schools.
Each year the Committee holds fundraising fairs at Easter, in the summer and at Christmas to raise money for the pre‑school; please bring everyone along, have a fun day out and contribute to the development of Meadow pre-school.
