Welcome To Duchy Preschool and Playgroup, Bradninch
We are now open from 08:00 to 18:00 Monday to Thursday, running 6 sessions per day (early 08:00 to 09:15, morning 09:15 to 11:45, lunch 11:45 to 12:45, afternoon 12:45 to 15:15 and teatime 15:15 to 17:00 and late 17:00 to 18:00). Parents can now access our outstanding childcare in ways that fit in better with work. Early and late sessions are run by the same dedicated staff as the main daytime sessions so the "grown-ups" are familiar to your children and the learning opportunities are similar.
We now have a blog, so you can see day by day what the children and staff have been up to. Please take a look and let us know what you think.

Parents in Cullompton, Bradninch, Hele and surrounding areas of Mid Devon can access our very high quality services free of charge for each of their children and can top up the Local Education Authority funded sessions by paying for extra sessions. We’re only 3 miles from Cullompton and children often make their first close friendships here. (Click here for a map)
