Mission Statement

At Squirrel Lodge Pre-School we have created a safe, caring and fun environment to engage and stimulate the lives of your little children. Squirrel Lodge encourages children to be confident, challenged and successful and have high self-esteem. We work closely with parents and other agencies, schools and private day nurseries to provide the highest quality childcare for each of our little squirrels. 


Squirrel Lodge is run by experienced and qualified staff committed to ensure quality care for your child.

Transition Into Setting

We understand that settling your child into pre-school can be daunting. Therefore we are happy for parents to stay for a short time in Squirrel Lodge to help settle their child. We aim for each child to enter the setting independently but this will be individual to each child.


We understand that some children may need something familiar to them from home such as a comforter or a small cuddly toy. We encourage children to drink from cups, and use knives, forks and spoons.  We do not encourage children to have dummies in the setting as this can affect a child’s speech.


All staff will arrange a home visit with parents so we can get to know each other in a familiar environment.
