Our Jill Dando News reporters find good news stories across Jill’s home town of Weston-super-Mare, as well as in the UK and across the globe. Here Ollie and Holly, 10, find out about an amazing new pre-school.

Castle Batch Primary School Academy (CBPSA) in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset have built a new preschool - and we think it is perfect!

Little Learners opened on the 5th of September at the start of the new school year.

The Priory Learning Trust built the nursery to help young learners get ready for school.

A member of staff who moved from the Priory preschool stated that “it’s even better than the last building”.

The teachers are making it a fun and loving learning environment.

The new preschool can hold up to 40 children at once but many more are involved.

Jill Dando News says: “We hope that children continue to enjoy the preschool for many years to come.”

Amy Marsh, Early Years Strategic Lead said: “Everyone is so excited at the incredible building and atmosphere at our new Little Learners facility.

“Those children transferring from Priory Preschool have settled in very well and there has been lots of fun and learning.”


The new provision will offer flexible sessions between 7.30am and 6.00pm for 50 weeks of the year.

CBPSA has just been awarded a clean sweep of Good ratings by Ofsted.

Little Learners, CBPSA and PCSA are all part of The Priory Learning Trust.
