About the Bungalow Pre-School

We are a privately run Ofsted registered pre-school, offering both private and government funded sessions to children aged 2-4 years. We are situated within the NHS/Library Complex on Prince Edward Road, South Shields, a fantastic location which enables us to use on-site services to enhance the care we provide for all children who attend our setting.

At the Bungalow Pre-School we provide care and education for children from 2 - 4 years of age. We operate from the multi-purpose site, based on the ground floor with access to a fantastic ‘free-flow’ play area. We also have access to community rooms within the centre, which we use for parent events as well as regular access to the on-site library facilities.

Our child-centred approach to learning ensures that each child is provided with a rich and enjoyable learning experience so they can grow and flourish as learners. We welcome and encourage parents to engage in their child's learning and share their experiences so that we can create a learning environment perfectly tailored for your child's individual needs.
