About us

Paddocks is situated on Paddock Road close to St. John’s School and within walking distance of Wallingford town centre. The preschool has an excellent reputation for building strong staff-children relationships as a result of its small size and nurturing environment. Parental input is also actively encouraged and good links develop naturally between parents and the Paddocks team.

Our Aims:

  • To enhance the development and education of children under statutory school age in a parent-involving, community based group.
  • To work within a framework that ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.


Paddocks follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and aims to provide a safe, secure and caring environment where every child is valued as an individual. Through a meaningful partnership with parents, we strive to make the bridge between home and school as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We create opportunities for the children to learn through their play and develop a growing independence and positive self-image.

At Paddocks, we operate a key person system with agreed individual learning goals for each child.


We have a comprehensive range of policies and procedures which are devised in consultation with parents, committee and staff and are accessible to all.

Please contact us to arrange an appointment to look round Paddocks at your convenience.
