Our Mission
It is our aim to provide children with a creative, imaginative and stimulating environment where your child feels safe and secure.
Crafty Wizards Pre-School is owned and managed by an Early Years trained practitioner with Qualified Teacher Status. Many of our Wise Wizards and Owls have previous experience in school settings. We share a common drive, to offer well planned, creative activities for our children to learn and develop in all the Early Years areas of learning. Our enthusiasm and passion is infectious and it is the magic that we aim for your child to gain to help grow in their future years.


We think art, craft, creativity and imagination should be at the centre of a child's learning. Everyday we will strive to make your child's learning exciting through encouraging vibrant creativity and imagination. We have a mix of free play and adult focused activities and offer experiences to learn through all the EYFS areas of learning. Please see 'Our Day' page for further details. We are a well resourced and friendly Pre-School in Avery Hill, New Eltham. Our staff are all 100% qualified. We are situated in an amazing setting with fields all around.
