Old Newton Under Fives Preschool is a warm, friendly, committee-run preschool based in rural Old Newton, Suffolk.

Based in Old Newton Village hall, we have been providing a pack-away, fun and enjoyable preschool for children aged 2 to 5 since 1987. Our strong connections within the village and facilities allows us to provide the children with a warm, safe place to play, learn and grow. We have close links with our local village school, Old Newton Primary School, offering Rising Fives sessions in the summer term. In the Spring we will be re-opening our popular toddler group, now to be known as Old Newton Stay and Play.

We pride ourselves on our fully qualified, enthusiastic and imaginative play leaders who provide a child-focused, interest led and interactive learning environment, to give your child the best possible start to their school journey.

Operating during term times only, we have indoor and secure outdoor play areas, and access to supervised play on outdoor equipment. We regularly arrange for walks around the adjoining playing field, woodland and nature areas.

Living with COVID-19

In light of the lifting of government restrictions , we have updated our Covid-19 policy. We will still have control measures in place for, if and when, someone becomes infected and these are in line with the government guidance ‘Living with Covid’ which can be found here.

I would also like to inform you that our current arrangements for drop off and collection of your children will remain the same. We have found this has helped the children to become more independent in taking their coats off and changing their shoes, which will help them when they go to school.

“OUTSTANDING” in the aspect of personal development

Christmas Bonanza – Thank you

Our Christmas Bonanza was back this year!! Working with Old Newton Village Hall, we organised this festive event bringing together so many talented local craftspeople to sell their wares and help raise money for the village hall and preschool. There was a BBQ, refreshments, a raffle, children’s area and much more. The event raised an amazing £1500 which was split between the village hall and the preschool. Thank you to all who attended and help make the event so successful. See you next year!

Gruffalo Trail

Gruffalo trail is back! They’ll be cakes, craft and face painting! We look forward to seeing you all there! 27th June 2021 10am-1pm £3 per child on Old Newton Playing Field.

Children are quick to develop exceptionally close bonds with the staff and their friends. This contributes to children’s excellent levels of emotional well-being.
