Welcome to Morchard Bishop Pre-School

Welcome to Morchard Bishop Pre-School which has been serving its community and surrounding villages for nearly 30 years.  We accept children between 2 and 5 years old with the aim of combining a professional and nurturing environment for learning with playtime and having fun.

Morchard Bishop Pre-School is run by Morchard Bishop Primary School Governing Board.

A Breakfast Club provision is run by a private individual on the Pre-School site for the Pre-School and school children.  Please ask for the details from the Pre-School staff.

Our Ethos

We encourage your child to grow at a pace that they are comfortable with and support each of them as individuals.

We recognise mums and dads as the first and most important educators of their children and as such, Morchard Bishop Pre-School staff see themselves as partners with you in providing quality care at the start of their education process.

Choice of lunches

Your child can choose to bring a packed lunch, or opt for a freshly prepared hot dinner, cooked in the adjoining school kitchen at a small extra cost (you can choose meals in advance from a varied menu, including vegetarian options). [see Sessions & Fees]


Close Links to Morchard Bishop Primary School

The majority of our children transfer to Morchard Bishop Primary School and we ease this transition for the older Pre-School children with weekly visits to the reception class. We are able to share the space in the school grounds, making use of the school field, the Roundhouse and the school playground

Every child is entitled to 15 hours a week Early Years Funding starting the term after their third birthday. From September 2017, working parents of three and four year olds who meet the criteria, will be eligible for 30 hours of free childcare. Please check the following:-
