Welcome to Runnymede Pre-School


COVID-19 Important Announcement


Runnymede Pre-school is temporarily closed


We have been told by Castle Point Borough Council that they are unable to allow us to use the Runnymede hall. This is the Government's COVID-19 Recovery Strategy Law that will not allow community buildings to be used unless for urgent public services, such as blood donations or homeless services. The earliest this will be reviewed is in Step 3 of the Governments adjustments to social distancing measures which will be no earlier than the 4th of July.


This means that we will not be able to open Runnymede Pre-school until the Council have been given permission to open the halls again. Unfortunately is does seem very likely that we will not be re-opening for the remainder of this term.


We are so sorry but it is beyond our control, we will keep you informed if anything changes.


The staff will still stay in contact with all of their Key children through Tapestry and we hope you will continue to send us all your lovely photos and comments.


We wish you well through these difficult times.

Please look after yourself & your families.

Hope to be back soon! 


From all at Runnymede Pre-School

Due to the consistent issue with the parking facilities at *Runnymede Leisure Centre* we have installed an Automatic Number Plate Recognition system into the main car park and the car park at the rear of the centre.

You must input your number plate into the tablet and complete the options to avoid getting a fine.

The cameras will be in operation Monday to Friday from 7:30am until 6pm and you will have a 30 minute grace period to enter your number plate into the tablets.
