VCD Athletic Club, Old Road, Crayford

At Enchanted Wood Preschool children come first! By providing a safe, stimulating and engaging environment, with high qualified, passionate staff children make the best possible progress. 

VCD Athletic Club in Old Road, Crayford is a full time preschool offering the same high standard with full-time care for working parents. This site has two room for our ‘rabbits’ (18mths-2yrs) and ‘hedgehogs’ (3-4 yr olds) group and provides a holistic curriculum in the indoor and outdoor environment. The preschool uses the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum to support the child’s individual learning and allows them to make progress in all areas in a pace and style unique to them. Using this child led teaching approach allows the children to make the best possible start in life and sets the foundations for confident, independent children moving forward into primary education. The curriculum is supported by additional activities such as Forest School, Baby Ballet, AW Football Coaching and Toddler Sense sessions to build on early independence, confidence and physical well-being.

We offer children with additional and complex needs 1:1 support (subject to funding) in a dedicated SEN area with lots of sensory input to meet the children’s individual requirements. It enables children with 1:1 support to learn in a quiet environment at work stations using visual timetables and the support of PECs. We work closely with multi agency teams such as Speech & Language, Physio and Occupational Therapist to provide the best care and will support EHC plan applications.

Most of all we want the children to have fun! We are the first steps in their educational journey and want them to enjoy coming in to preschool and be excited to learn and experience new things. For many it is the first time they have left their parents and building these important early attachments to key workers and new friends at preschool helps them to feel happy, safe and secure. Once these skills are imbedded the learning and development will begin and you will see your child acquire new skills daily. We want every day at Enchanted Wood Preschool to be a memorable one and hope your little one has the best time with us!
