Southern Cross Pre-school is Ofsted registered and based at Southern Cross Church halls (please note we are not connected to the church we just rent the premise). We have two lovely large halls and a garden. All areas are safe and secure allowing children to move freely between all areas. 


We offer high quality childcare where children learn through play with qualified, experienced, caring and dedicated practitioner's. Many of our practitioner's are parents themselves so have lots of experience in caring for young children. We are proud to say all staff have been with us for many years so we have a happy constant team. 


We accept all cultural, ethnic, religious and social backgrounds. We are not connected to any particular religious belief, we celebrate the festivals of many cultures so children learn about different customs in our community. 


We sometimes take the children out on trips in our local area to further their learning experiences. An example of some places we have visited are: 

  • Local garden centre to buy seeds and plants to grow in our garden or for children to take home

  • Visit to the park looking a nature

  • Trip to the shops to buy fruit so children can make fruit kebabs or other cooking items

  • Visit to Mile Oak farm to see the animals

  • Visit to Hove toy museum looking at toys from the past


We also have visitors come to our setting to extend learning on topics we are covering. Here is an example of visitors:

  • Fire Engine 

  • Pet animals

  • Police and people that help us

  • Road Crossing Assistants to promote road safety

  • Guide dogs for the blind

  • Parents who wish to share a talent or talk about their job/hobby


We hold several social events for children and their families such as:

  • Christmas party

  • Summer Party and School leavers farewell

  • Easter Egg Hunt

  • Open Days

  • Autumn Fair

  • Teddy Bears Picnic

COVID-19 restrictions are preventing some activities at this time in order to keep everyone safe. We are however still offering lots of fun activities for the children.


Charity status


We are a registered charity so we run a non-profit pre-school. All profits go into providing resources for the children and ensuring the quality of service is at its best. 


We hold fund raising events each year and we get everyone involved. It's lots of fun and always a very sociable affair. 

Charity No: 1039124








The Committee 

We have a committee which help us to run the Pre-School. The committee is made up of volunteers; many of which are parents. We hold meetings each term to discuss fundraising, finances, setting policies and much more. The committee help organise fundraising events which enable us to purchase more resources for our children and to improve our practice. We always encourage families to get involved and help where they can. This gives everyone a sense of community.
