Skip to main content ** Cafe open! The School Room at The Southville Centre. 08:00 - 17:30 Monday to Thursday. 08:00 - 16:00 on Friday. **

The Raleigh Room is our Term Time Only provision, and in this room we have 30 children aged 3 – 4. This colourful room encourages children to be inquisitive and investigative with their play. The children are free to be themselves in an environment that is relaxed and engaging. Much like the Stackpool Room and the Ruby Room, the children are encouraged to increase their independence to prepare them for the next stages of their lives at primary school.

The Raleigh Room is in receipt of government funding, with families able to access their 15 hours of Free Early Education Entitlement through two fixed session options:

Group One – Monday and Tuesday, 9am to 3pm, and Wednesday 9am to 12noon 

Group Two – Wednesday, 12noon to 3pm, Thursday and Friday, 9am to 3pm 

We also offer 30 hours of funding, Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm, which is subject to availability and eligibility. You can find more information about funding and how to apply on:

See what the Raleigh Room have been up to this month:

June 2022

In the sunny weather, we have been enjoying lots of water play to cool down. The children have loved splashing and exploring the water! We have also enjoyed a group trip to the park which was lots and lots of fun.

May 2022

We have been busy in Raleigh Room this month with lots of Jubilee celebrations. We learnt a new song… happy royal jubilee; painted union jacks; decorated pictures of the Queen with rice and made our very own crown jewels. We had fun making our own cucumber sandwiches (the queen’s favourite food!) and had a day wearing red, white and blue. 

April 2022

The children in Raleigh Room have been enjoying lots of Easter activities, including: making bunny crowns, daffodil painting, egg and spoon races, Easter egg hunts and Easter egg design.

They also had the chance to experience having Babycinos on a rainy day in the café!
