Happy and safe

St Peter's Preschool is set within the attractive and spacious walled gardens of St Peter’s School in Kettering. We offer a safe, stimulating and supportive environment where children are inspired to learn and play within a caring family atmosphere. Our large bright rooms, outdoor covered classroom and extended outdoor space provide the perfect setting for children to be happy and active learners.

Eager and enquiring

Through the gentle guidance and encouragement of our experienced staff, our children develop positive behaviour and essential social skills. These skills include good manners, sharing, friendship-building, and becoming dynamic and independent learners as they grow in confidence. St Peter's Preschool provides a structured daily timetable of learning through play and we encourage self-expression and imagination using activities such as painting, construction, role play, and singing. We also offer additional activities such as Ballet, French, and Music and Movement.

As children journey towards the beginning of their formal education, we place a greater emphasis on the development of early reading, writing and mathematical skills. We value traditional approaches, using technology to support learning, with computers and an interactive ‘smart board’. Our small team of experienced, well-qualified staff place great importance on building strong links with parents.

The best quality of care

A healthy and varied lunch is cooked by our own chef and children and staff eat together in a seated dining room. A wide range of dietary and religious requirements can be catered for and our staff will gently encourage the most reluctant of eaters to enjoy different tastes and textures.

Our fees are competitively priced and we offer a number of funded childcare places accepting Childcare Vouchers and the Government Tax Free Childcare Scheme. A combination of session arrangements can usually be provided to suit the needs of parents who can also take advantage of our before and after school care which is available from 8am to 5.30pm.

The perfect start

In these important formative years, the only commitment you are making when enrolling at St Peter's Preschool is to give your child the perfect start to a life-long love of learning.

We warmly welcome you to experience this happy and productive atmosphere for yourself, please contact us to arrange an informal visit with the Preschool Leader either during one of our Open Days or by appointment at other times of the year.


My son went to two nurseries before Sunnylands and the difference was amazing. This is by far the best preschool ever. Children do not just play, they are taught and encouraged to keep learning, writing, and are awarded for doing well. My son quickly learned to write numbers from 1 - 10 by the age of three. 

It's such a positive place and I would highly recommend this preschool.
