Outdoor play, singing and dancing will all be on the cards in Mead Vale this year, after a new preschool opened.

The Play and Learn Preschool has opened at the community centre, in Redwing Drive.

The nursery’s management wants to provide a ‘quality’ service, putting individual children ahead of big class numbers.

The centre’s manager, Julie McCallum, said interest in the nursery has already been good.

She told the Mercury: “We have had a number of children sign up already, which is really good for January because it is part way through the year.”

Julie already runs a Play and Learn Preschool based at Worle Village Primary School and she said there was a ‘real need’ for a preschool in Mead Vale, after one recently closed down.

She said: “We just heard about the room becoming available and went for it, so we have now got the little room at the back of the hall.
