Scallywags Pre-School has been running for over 40 years!

We have a dedicated team of staff who work very closely with parents to ensure that every child is happy and encouraged to achieve their full potential.

We use custom-built premises attached to the Parish Hall in the village of Halwill Junction, providing quality early years education for children from the age of 2 to 5 years. We are registered to take up to 26 children per day. 

Scallywags is run by a Volunteer Management Committee who employ a part-time paid Administrator.

 We are a registered Charity and registered with Ofsted.

We have membership and insurance with Early Years Alliance.
