Welcome to Launchpad Early Years

Launchpad is the Church of England’s Early Years Southern Network.

We run our own pre-school settings and offer support and guidance to others affiliated through the Launchpad Early Years Network.

Our Nursery and Pre-Schools provide high-quality childcare for children in happy and safe environments, with expert staff who are passionate about the care, welfare and development to the youngest children.

We operate an open-door policy and welcome children of all faiths or none. Please see our Settings page for details.

Launchpad also provides Partnership support for settings, please see our Partnership page for details.
