Welcome to Wesley Pre-School

We are a very focused and nurturing Preschool serving the local community, by providing high quality care and education for children aged between 2 and 5yrs of age. We work in partnership with parents to encourage children's learning and development through a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

Wesley Pre-school is proud to have been serving the local community since 1967. Many children who join our pre-school do so on the recommendation of families who have attended in the past and have given positive feedback from their time at Wesley.

Our curriculum is planned to meet the learning and development needs of every child. We are a member of the Early Years Alliance and registered with Ofsted who rated us "Good" at our last inspection in 2016, a link for this can be found at the bottom of the page. Wesley pre-school is overseen by a committee, comprising of church representatives and management team. We work in close partnership with our parents.

You can find us easily at the rear of Benfleet Methodist Church, accessed from Hall Farm Road.
