South Petherwin Pre-School is now OPEN!!

Hi, my name is Natalie Bewes and I would like to introduce myself as the Pre-school Manager.

I am really looking forward to taking on this new challenge and cannot wait to provide an exciting and inviting environment for the children.

I was previously the nursery manager of Coombe Valley Nursery several years ago until I took a break in my career to have children. I now have 2 daughters of my own who both attend South Petherwin School and so I am extremely familiar with the school and the staff and I felt that it was the right time for me to return to Early Years.


We are open now as part of the school and this will be key to forming strong links with the Reception class in particular, when transitioning to school. The school is already an important part of the community and the pre-school will extend this further to the younger children within the village and surrounding areas. We will also have opportunities to use the school environment indoors & outdoors which will extend the learning opportunities for the children.
