Shilbottle Friendly Frogs opened in 2000 and has prided itself ever since on providing high quality care for children and families in our community.
"Children have an excellent time in the visually stimulating and highly enabling learning environment. A wealth of resources, which are attractively displayed, support children in their learning across all areas. The atmosphere within the pre-school is calm and purposeful. Children are entirely engaged during their play. This is a direct result of the highly skilled staff team who plan a rich and varied educational programme that excites and intrigues the children." [Ofsted 2015]
Shilbottle Friendly Frogs is based in the grounds of Shilbottle Primary, over the years we have developed close links with the school and have established a seamless transition for our children into the Reception class. We are able to offer our children a wide range of exciting activities because of our links with the school.
At present we can take up to 24 children aged 2-4 years old.
