Wembdon Sunshiners Pre-School started out as Wembdon Playgroup in November 1965 (we celebrated our 50th anniversary in November 2015) and was based in the old Village Hall on Orchard lane. In the 1990s the playgroup relocated to the Parish Centre where we were based until our move into the new facilities at Wembdon Village Hall in 2017. Our pre-school is now a busy, popular setting for under fives.
We are situated in a peaceful setting at the edge of the village of Wembdon on the outskirts of Bridgwater, next to open fields, attached to the Wembdon Village Hall. The Village Hall gives us the flexibility of a large hall with an individually designed, secure play area outside.
We are inspected by OFSTED and our most recent inspection report was on 04/10/2016. We are proud to have achieved 'Good' with the inspector commenting on how outstanding our child led planning is.
