You can find us in Runnymede small hall (behind the main Runnymede hall) at the rear of the Castle Point Council offices on the A13, Benfleet. There is a large car park adjacent. 

We operate an ‘open door’ policy at Runnymede Preschool; this means that you are welcomed into the setting at all times. We are also here to support you as parents and carers, and our professional team have a wealth of knowledge and experience should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child's development or simply need somebody to talk to. We will pay any concerns or worries you may have with the absolute respect they deserve and will always find time to listen
