Our Pre-School

About us

Doddiscombsleigh Pre-School is a community-run, not-for-profit pre-school with charitable status. We are a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance, registered with the Charity Commission and are regulated by Ofsted. Founded in 1992 by local parents and the school, the management of the pre-school is now the responsibility of an elected committee comprising of parents, carers, community members and school staff who volunteer their time, experience and resources.

The Pre-School is located in a stunning rural setting on the edge of Dartmoor and just 7 miles from Exeter in the heart of the village of Doddiscombsleigh. Our 3 highly experienced staff are fully qualified early years practitioners.  Our small pre-school size has an excellent staff to child ratio, each of our staff has time to nurture each child and their family as individuals. We have strong links with Doddiscombsleigh Primary School, aiding a smooth transition into Reception Class; although we welcome applications from all children from the community regardless of future school plans.

We are open 4 days a week, Monday to Thursday, for more information click here:  Our sessions
