Who We Are

Masons Preschool welcomes children from age two to rising five years olds and is situated in Shirley. Masons has been established for over 40 years in the area and we are based in our own secure premises, together with a wonderful outside space.

The preschool has good links with a number of local schools, which helps us ensure smooth transition from preschool to school.  If you are coming from farther afield, we will also liaise with your child’s chosen school and provide support for an efficient transition.

Our intention is to make our preschool genuinely accessible to children and families from all sections of both the local community and from farther afield.  We are OfSTED registered.

It is our policy to ensure that our provision meets the needs of each individual child and family. As such, we take into account any special needs that a child, or family member, may have.  We will support children who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and those for whom English is an additional language.

Why Us?

Masons follow a weekly planning schedule which is based on the principles of the EYFS - Early Years Foundation Stage. These principles, aims and goals are an integrated approach woven into the fabric of our preschool and offers a holistic approach to the EYFS. We observe the children at work and in their play. Based on this we have designed our setting on those observations. It is stimulating and flexible, designed to meet the changing needs of the children in our care.


Please ensure the children have named wellies in school. This enables them to use all of the outside areas.

Please ensure the children have a named coat/jacket in preschool please.
