PreSchools and Playgroups for Bovey Tracey

Little Acorns Montessori

The Catholic Church Hall, Ashburton Road, Bovey Tracey TQ13 9BY, UK – 07397 799113

My son has been at Little Acorns since September 2015 when he had just turned 2 years old. I cannot praise the staff highly enough over the past two years of him attending. He has loved every day and seeing his personality and development skills blossom with the Montessori teaching methods in such a nurturing environment has been a joy. Little Acorns offer the perfect combination of structure and play that I believe gives children the confidence needed ready for their next stage in education.

I cannot recommend Little Acorns preschool highly enough. My daughter began attending in January 2017 and settled in very quickly. It is clear that she really enjoys her time there, she speaks fondly about staff, other children and the different activities they do. As a parent I have had excellent communication from the staff. My son will also be attending there when he turns two years old.

Ilsington Pre-school

Ilsington Village Hall, Ilsington, Newton Abbot TQ13 9RG, UK – 07779 691992

My son has been at this preschool for a little over a year. It's amazing. The staff, facilities, lessons etc are just brilliant. My son has learnt so much and his confidence is sky high. There's talk of it closing down due to it not making enough profit. My son will be devastated. My daughter is due to go there when she's old enough. I'm truly gutted that it might be closing as all other preschools just don't come close.
