About Us

Welcome to The Jungle Hut Pre-School. We are a childcare setting providing care and education for children aged 2-4 years. We are in the heart of North Dorset, between Sturminster Newton and Shaftesbury, on the premises of St. Gregory’s Primary School, in the village of Marnhull. We open from 8.30am until 3.00pm for 38 weeks per year, on a term time only basis.

We are a community group, a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.

Our aims are:

  • To enhance the development and education of children in a parent-involving, community-based group.

  • To offer good quality, affordable childcare.

  • To provide a caring, safe, secure and stimulating environment for children from 2-4 years.

  • To work within a framework that ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.

"Staff are kind, caring and sensitive. They welcome children warmly and show interest in what they have to say. Children enter the pre-school confidently and happily, and settle quickly"
