Whiteway Pre-school

Whiteway Pre-school is based in Rottingdean, near Peacehaven. We first opened our doors in 1978 and have been offering high quality child care ever since. We are a registered charity, run by our committee of parents. Our teachers and parents work closely to ensure the smooth runnings of the nursery. We offer fun educational activities for our children.

We have regular annual events including a song concert, a Christmas Party with Father Christmas, a sports day, a Drusillas outing and an end of year party. We tailor our teaching to every child's individual needs to support their unique stage of learning and development.

Our team are experienced, qualified, and we love what we do - providing our children with the best quality education possible. We have a high ratio of adults to children, allowing us to offer individual care.

About Us

We are open during these hours:

Mondays: 8:45am - 3:00pm

Tuesdays: 8:45am - 1:00pm

Wednesdays: 8:45am - 3:00pm

Thursdays: 8:45am - 1:00pm

Fridays: 8:45am - 1:00pm

Our children take part in various activities each day. We always have group activities such as a story reading or playing musical instruments. Alternatively, our children can partake in outdoor activities such as bikes, construction resources and more. We always promote healthy eating and every child receives a mid-morning snack (usually toast, fruit and vegetables and milk) and lunch.

Sometimes, we take the children on short educational walks and we invite parents to join in with activities such as cooking and baking. See our daily routine in more detail.

Safety is always the highest priority. We always aim to provide a secure, safe and positive environment where each child is valued as an individual. We are registered to take care of 24 children each session between the ages of 2 and 5. Our adult to child ratio often even exceeds the legal requirements. We have secure premises, of which the main entrance is kept locked at all times.

Funding Options and Fees

Our standard sessions run from 8:45am until 1:00pm and cost £20.00 per session. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the pre-school is open until 3:00pm to which the charge for the session is £35.00.
