YMCA Pre-school Millbrook offers high quality care and support to children within the community in Southampton. Our pre-school welcomes 2-5 year olds and offers 2 year funded places. Our purpose-built building is light and airy, and has been designed with children in mind. With plenty of natural areas, and resources, the garden is a place for children to explore and create their own adventures.

Our pre-school

Your child will have lots of opportunities to be physically active and to build on their growing confidence and independence. They will learn about their environment through play, discovering how fast they can move, how to co-ordinate, and developing their imagination.

As with all our nurseries, YMCA Pre-school Millbrook will be Ofsted registered and have a dedicated, well-trained staff team. All staff undergo an enhanced DBS check before commencing employment and we follow up all references and certificates.
