Springboard Pre-School meets Monday - Friday 9:30 am - 12:30 pm and at other times as advertised on their site during the normal school term times.
We aim to provide a safe, fun and happy environment where children can learn through play, giving them the foundations they will need to continue their education in the local schools. At present we have 30 children attending throughout the week.
This year we have been able to support various charitable events. We held a McMillan coffee morning in September, and for our harvest appeal sent a large donation of food to our local food bank. We also had a fun morning in support of Comic Relief.
Our last Ofsted inspection coincided with the last day of term and our Nativity performance day! Credit to all the hard working staff, and also parents and children who were fabulous, we got a grading of 'outstanding'.
During the year we have continued to visit Danbury woods one afternoon every half term, where parents accompany children for an afternoon of exploration in the woods. These 'forest school' style activities are well received by parents and loved by the children. Most popular are the regular visits to the dens and the stream.

As a church we believe in the power of prayer and that it makes a difference in situations and circumstances. We are part of Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer, joining with Christians from across our City to pray for the things God lays on our hearts. Please follow this link for more information about how you and your church can get involved: https://chelmsford24-7.org/. Plans for the near future at Springfield Park involve the setting up of a new prayer space and prayer walks around our local area. Watch this space for developments.
