Banstead Bunnies Pre-School

A unique and welcoming setting providing a stimulating environment to advance your child’s development. 

What we do

We provide pre-school education for children aged 2 ½ years to 4 years.



EYFS is the Early Years Foundation Stage. It is a curriculum designed by the Government’s Department of Education and regulated by Ofsted. It provides a structured pathway to develop children in readiness for full-time education. Each child at Bunnies completes their own fully documented Learning Journey during their time with us.

learn some additional outdoor skills, and enjoy the benefits of being outdoors.

I just wanted to send a note to say thank you for everything you guys do at Banstead Bunnies. Our daughter absolutely loves going to preschool and looks forward to going every day.  We are so pleased that she has settled in so well and been getting positive feedback from her key worker on the Baby Days system. The additions of photos of the system is really helpful, as we usually get some details about her day from our daughter, but we find out a lot more from the photos.  It looks like you have lots of different activities every day.

Please say thank you to your team.

The staff here are fantastic. As parents we get everything we could hope for. Bringing our son to Bunnies was the best decision we have made for him so far ! He is absolutely thriving with his Key Worker.

My son was one of the first Bunnies that they had on her register. He was so well looked after, had fun, made some great friends and I had the confidence to go to work to build my own business knowing he was safe. When the time came for him to leave and go to school, he did so in a confident, well adjusted and balanced manner – that was mainly down to the wonderful staff and his Key Worker at Bunnies. Being the eldest in the academic year they ensured he was challenged, not pushed, and recognised his need for learning. Communication between parents and Bunnies staff has always been exceptional. He said the two best things about Bunnies were the teachers and Forest School

Management and staff continually pursue excellence in their practice and provision. Highly consistent staff practice supports all children to receive a high standard of care. Children are highly motivated and active learners. They quickly gain the skills they need for their future learning. They fully incorporate the views of parents and children, to continuously maintain a high-quality provision.

Children benefit from a well-organised, safe, welcoming and inclusive setting. They have very good relationships with staff, which helps them settle quickly. They show good levels of confidence and independence and are motivated to learn.
