Welcome to Southover Pre-School

At Southover Pre-school we endeavour to provide the best care and education for every child, regardless of their background or circumstances. We ensure that the safety, security, health and well-being of our children is imperative.

We strive in building strong relationships with both parent and child to get to know each child individually and to discover and enhance their individual learning styles and talents. Southover Pre-school provides each child with a key person who will support the child and their family. In addition, to this the key person will provide learning opportunities, through play which will develop each child’s knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

We create a nurturing, and exciting environment consisting of indoor and outdoor activities to develop children’s learning. Southover works in partnership with parents/carers to keep track of their child’s development through observations and assessments based on the EYFS early learning goals and to have open channels of communication for sharing information with parents/carers about their child.


One of the most well-respected Pre-Schools in London.

Southover is an independent pre-school based in the heart of Woodside Park in leafy green surroundings. The pre-school has been running since 1968 and we have places for children aged between 21 months old and five years. The teaching team is highly qualified with over 30 years of experience between them. The staff are able to provide the children in our setting with a rich, stimulating and varied curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. All learning opportunities offered to your child are ‘play-based’ as current research has shown that children at this age and stage of development learn best through play.
