We have been serving families locally for over 40 years, originally as Southcourt Baptist Church Playgroup, and continue to offer a safe and stimulating environment for all of the children in our care. We remain a part of, and are fully supported by Southcourt Baptist Church as part of its work serving the local community.

We are located in a new, state of the art, purpose built building, completed in early 2016 in a joint project with Buckinghamshire County Council. We are located close to Aylesbury town centre and offer good parking for drop off and picking up times.

We aim to enable all our children to develop socially, educationally and emotionally through play, ultimately leading to a successful transition into school. An important aspect of achieving this aim is to maintain close links with the parents and carers of the children, working in partnership at all times.

Our staff are well qualified, with three members of staff, including our Manger and Deputy Manager, holding early years degrees. OFSTED commented in their latest report ‘Staff communicate very well with each other, so every member of staff knows what each child needs to learn next.’

Our Vision is ‘for all children who attend The Treehouse Pre-School to reach their full potential in a loving and supportive environment‘.
