A little about the history of our Pre-school

Sandy Pre-school was created by the merger of Sandy Sunshine and Sandpiper Pre-schools in 2002.

Sandy Sunshine was a well established Pre-school serving the local community in Sandy for 30+ years. It was first held at the Baptist Church before moving to what used to be St. Swithun’s Primary School by the town roundabout. Then it moved premises to Dapifer Block at Sandye Place Middle Academy.  Sandpiper Pre-school had been running in Sandy since 1977 where it held sessions at the Community hall behind the library until the merger in 2002.

In September 2016 Sandy Pre-School moved to Maple Tree Lower School and opened as a class within the school. We are known as Little Saplings, making us especially proud to be a part of Maple Tree Lower School.
