Under Fives Roundabout Pre-School

Under Fives Roundabout is a highly successful and respected child-care provider based in Cambridge. We have been running groups for children under 5 since the group was first set up in 1980.

Roundabout presently runs two age-related pre-school groups and a toddler group – all 3 groups are well regarded by the parents, and often operate waiting lists. Our last two Ofsted inspections have both been graded ‘Good’, with a ‘Good’ rating in each of the 5 key assessment areas.

We are passionate about providing a high standard of care and foundation stage education for our children. In particular we seek to:
• Maintain a higher than average adult to child ratio to ensure that children receive sufficient individual attention to guarantee care and education of a high quality
• Provide a warm, caring, and child-friendly environment where children feel safe and valued, and can grow in confidence and develop socially
• Involve parents in their children’s education at this early stage, through parent helper rotas, or serving on the committee
• Help children make the move from care in the home to full time school by providing continuity through Toddler Group to Pre-school.
• Provide an inclusive setting where diversity is welcome, and adequate provision is made for children with different abilities.
• Strengthen the local community by serving its needs, and encouraging good relationships among the families attending Roundabout.
