Quality childcare in a flexible and safe environment

Located a short walking distance from Andover town centre, The Scott Centre Preschool is an Ofsted registered preschool for children aged 2-5 years.

Run by our fantastic team, The Scott Centre offers a bright, spacious, and well-equipped setting with a secure outdoor play area that is great for exploring! All activities are run in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage and focus on the individual interests of the children and their environment.

We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that supports children to cultivate their individual personality. 

It is our aim to assist children to develop their emotional, social and communicative skills as well as academic skills such as pre-reading, pre-writing, counting, size and shape recognition, and problem solving. We promote creative skills including music and art, and physical skills to improve their balance, movement and awareness of the world around them.

We have regular meetings with parents and carers so you can see your child’s development and progress with the help of their Learning Journey Book.

Once your children are at school, they can continue their journey with us through our various Breakfast and After School Clubs which cater for most of the Andover schools.

Session Times & Pricing

Morning and afternoon sessions run from Monday to Friday during term time. Both morning and and afternoon sessions are available. Children are welcome to join us for Lunch Club from 12-12.30 each day (but please remember to bring a packed lunch!)

Prices start at £13.50 plus a £15 registration fee. We accept government funding for 2-4 years old and we are registered with the local authority to allow parents to access their free entitlement of preschool hours.
