Cottontails Pre-school was formed 43 years ago by a group of parents. It still continues to be managed by a committee of parents to provide a safe, stimulating, happy and caring environment where the children can learn through their play.

Cottontails take children the term after they turn 2 years old and remain with us until they start Primary School.

During the hours we are open, Cottontails offer the 30 hours free childcare funding to eligible families.

Further information on how our sessions work, what your child needs to bring, and your child’s learning and development while at Cottontails can be found in our Brochure/Information Pack.
