If you’re interested in visiting to one of our preschools please get in touch.

Children Learn Through Play

Play glues together everything a child has learnt, knows, feels, relates to and understands about their world.


We provide opportunities for learning both indoors and outside. Children are encouraged and supported in their creative play. We aim for their time with us to be a fun, stimulating, and valuable learning experience. 


All Launchpad settings deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which consists of these seven areas: 

  • Physical Development
  • Communications and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Understanding the World


We are committed to the continued development of your child. We care not only for their intellectual and emotional development but for their spiritual development too. If you’d like to find out more about our values please click here. 

Our Preschools

In 2019 we opened our doors at three different settings around Hampshire and East Dorset.
