Welcome to Ruskin Road Pre-School

Please browse our website to discover why Ruskin Road is one of Carshalton's most popular Pre-Schools.

We accept children aged 2½ – 5 years old and are open Monday to Friday during term time. The morning session is 9.30 am – 12.30 pm, with an optional afternoon session from 12.30 – 2.30 pm each day.

We are in the Upper Park Hall at Carshalton Methodist Church, Ruskin Road, Carshalton, SM5 3DE. Although the Pre-School is owned by the church, the children learn about other faiths and cultures and we celebrate the major festivals throughout the year.

To discuss your child's admission please contact the Pre-School manager Lisa Pearce on 020 3609 0243 (weekday mornings) or send her an email.

To apply for a place for your child, please either download an application form, or complete our online application form.
