Buttercross Pre-School

The Buttercross Pre-school opened its doors over 30 years ago and in this time has grown from strength to strength to become a well established setting with an excellent reputation. The Pre-school is located in a residential area close to the centre of the village/town of Bingham, operating from within The Robert Miles Infant School, School Lane, Bingham.

Through our excellent team of experienced staff, our aim is to provide a safe, caring, happy and stimulating environment for all children placed in our care. We care for children from a range of economic and cultural backgrounds from Bingham aswell as surrounding villages. We support children who have special educational needs and English as an additional language.
