About Us

At Lostwithiel Preschool we help your child to take the steps towards full time education. 

Our well-established Preschool and Playgroup has been providing early years education in the town of Lostwithiel for over forty years. 

The preschool team is dedicated to offering a range of play opportunities for young children, inside and out, and we pride ourselves on creating a sociable extension of home.

Whilst our location, within the grounds of Lostwithiel Primary School, does not guarantee your child a place at the school, the shared use of the school’s facilities and a weekly visit to the Reception class, all help children to smoothly transition into the next stage of their educational journey.

Forest School

Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment. The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences. We provide a minimum of two Forest School sessions a week, using the school grounds. Children explore the woodland area looking for bugs, climbing trees and sliding down muddy banks. Snack time is very popular: popcorn, marshmallows or garlic bread cooked over a bonfire. Everyone has lots of fun at Forest School and the safety of the children is of the utmost importance.
