We offer a warm, welcoming and caring environment with a strong team of enthusiastic and well-qualified staff, many of whom have been with us for several years. In 2013 we gained our stage three accreditation under the Pre-School Learning Alliance's quality improvement Scheme: Reflecting on Quality. This is a huge accolade to all those involved and committed to improving Buckden Pre-School.

We have strong links with Buckden Primary School for ease of transition when children move on. We also work closely with other professionals such as health visitors, speech therapists, early years specialist support teachers and local children's centres. We have a designated special educational needs co-ordinator who supports children and families with additional needs.
