St Mary’s Preschool, Riverhead



St. Mary's Pre-School are sad to announce their closure on 10th December 2021.  

The continual underfunding by government, the effects of covid, low numbers of children and not enough parents to form a committee have finally meant we can no longer carry on.

After almost 50 years of running in Riverhead Village Hall, we are devastated that it has come to this.

Huge thanks and respect go to our staff team, who have carried on under very difficult circumstances, to ensure the children had a safe, happy and enjoyable end to their time with us, culminating in a Christmas party and visit from Santa on the last day of term.

Thanks also to all the parents who have supported us over the years, by joining our committee, helping out when needed and providing much needed resources, and to all the staff who have been part of our team over the years, each one of whom left their mark on the pre-school.

Most of all, thank you to all the children we have cared for over the years, we hope you enjoyed your time with us and that we made a difference, in some small way, to your lives.
