Established in 1978, YMCA Taunton Preschool has been providing quality early childhood education for over four decades. Our dedicated and qualified staff are committed to the well-being and development of every child.

At YMCA Taunton Preschool, we believe in providing a nurturing environment where children can thrive and grow. Our facilities include dedicated indoor learning zones which stimulate young minds, as well as an expansive outdoor play area. Here, children can explore a mud kitchen, engage in forest school activities, tend to a vegetable plot and greenhouse, and learn in our educational garden.

In addition to our enriching environment, we offer access to the Sports Hall in the YMCA Centre for physical education, ensuring a holistic approach to child development.

We welcome children from across Taunton and beyond, fostering a sense of community and inclusivity. At YMCA Taunton Preschool, we strive to create a supportive and engaging environment where every child can learn, play, and flourish.


YMCA Taunton Preschool is committed to transparency in all aspects of our operations. Open communication is welcomed and we encourage parents/carers to actively participate in their child’s educational journey. Regular contact is maintained with parents/carers, keeping them informed about their children’s learning, progress, and daily activities. Feedback is valued and we welcome communication from parents/carers, fostering a collaborative approach to early childhood education.

As part of the Taunton community, we understand the importance of supporting the whole family unit. In addition to providing high-quality childcare and education, we offer additional support and signposting to resources within the community, ensuring that families have access to the assistance they need.
