Roundabout runs a preschool and a toddler group, and is situated at the end of Warwick Road, adjacent to Mayfield Primary School – although Roundabout is independent from Mayfield. The groups are structured as follows:

The preschool is run in a purpose built facility which was opened in September 2008. The toddler group runs from Mayfield’s Community Room, a few yards from the our main building. Roundabout exists to provide outstanding preschool provision for the children in our care. We are passionate about providing a stimulating, fun, nurturing and educational environment in which children can learn and grow, and develop their confidence in readiness for primary school.

Under Fives Roundabout is a registered charity and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. Roundabout has an experienced, qualified and committed staff, and is run by a committee of dedicated local parent volunteers. Please see our Ofsted Registration and latest report.

And this is what people say about us:

“We absolutely love the Under Fives Roundabout preschool as well as the toddler group. Our older child settled at preschool in no time and she loves coming back there. We still go to the toddler group too as it’s so much fun for our children! Thank You!” Ann

“The free-flow play environment promotes children’s independence extremely well and encourages them to freely explore and investigate both indoor rooms and the outdoor learning environment.” Ofsted

“The best toddler group in the area: great outdoor playing area and very professionally run! Amazing place to meet other parents in the neighbourhood, especially Spanish speaking.” Marta
