  • Our graduate-lead preschool is overseen by our team of qualified staff going strong since 1963. Based on Whittington Barracks, Lichfield, Staffordshire, we have room for 23 preschoolers, 15 toddlers and nine babies.
    We have invested a lot of time and thought over recent years to ensure that we are offering the best we can for our children.
    We had our garden redeveloped and landscaped last year, which has gone down a storm with children, parents and staff.
    We have redecorated and purchased new furniture in all of our rooms to enhance the learning environment for all of our children.
    We have online learning journals for all of our children, which enables parents to view their child’s developmental progress at a time convenient to them. This also includes our policies and procedures, information about staff, galleries and a daily diary.

    Our recently refurbished garden is a real show stopper, with activities for all ages it is a stimulating environment for children to grow and learn. The secure garden and courtyard include, slide, bridge, climbing wall, playhouse, boat and role-play road track. Our children love to greet our pet Rabbit ‘Bunny’ on the way in to school.


    • All the staff are so lovely! My little lad adores Sam & Carrie-Ann in the baby room, they’ve made the room so cosy and loving for the children, it’s like a home from home. And the outdoor space is amazing! So lucky to have a facility like this on our doorstep. Keep up the amazing work, everyone!

    • Whittington Preschool and Nursery have been looking after my son since he was 6 months old. It is a fantastic nursery with outstanding staff I can’t thank them all enough for the past nearly 2 years. We will be very sad to leave in April.
