An Introduction To Our Setting…

Choosing a nursery can be a very daunting time, here at Jack in the Box Pre-school we aim to provide a safe and interesting environment for your children to learn and grow in their development.

Children learn in many different ways, and with that in mind we encourage and value diversity.

A wide range of equipment and materials are used daily to encourage an open-ended approach to creativity and problem solving.

We enjoy helping your children to develop the skills needed to give them an understanding of the world around them and to help them feel ready for the next stage of their learning when they move from our Preschool into School.


If your looking for a fun and friendly preschool – you’ve found it!

Our Pre-school is located in the Scout Headquarters situated in Clay Lane, Wendover.

Because we share facilities with the scouts club we have what’s called a pack away setting. Every day we set up and pack away our equipment, in doing this we are able to keep our activities varied daily (although we like to keep out a few favourites) and spot check our toys and equptment regularly.

You can access the Pre-school by foot from Icknield Close (200 yards from the schools) or by car via the Tring Road.

Jack In The Box Preschool is a charity run Preschool (charity no 1038378) registered by OFSTED for 30 children per session. Your child will usually join us when they become two. They can stay with us until you have secured a place at a school of their choice. Therefore some children will not leave us until they are nearly 5 years (Rising five’s).

The OFSTED report is available for parents to read.
