The Big Top Pre-School started life as a playgroup based in Bedgrove Community Centre.  Sylvia took it over in September 2002.

Sylvia recognised the opportunity for expansion, it is now a thriving pre-school caring for up to 40 children per session, 5 days per week.  After 12 years, Sylvia moved across to a new setting on Buckingham Park, leaving an excellent team at the Big Top Pre-School on Bedgrove.

Our second setting in the Buckingham Park Community Centre opened in January 2013.  Again, the setting has expanded from offering 5 morning sessions to now offering 5 mornings or 3 full days. The Buckingham Park team provides excellent care to up to 32 children per day. 

After many years of operating term time only pre-schools, Sylvia always dreamt of having a full time childcare provision.  Sylvia began by going back to college and gained all the relevant qualifications.  After 5 years of study, Sylvia graduated from University with my BA in Early Years. 

Sylvia then went back to University and gained the Early Years Professional Status qualification. Shortly after completing the qualification, Sylvia and her determinded family found 74C High Street, Waddesdon, HP18 0JD, an empty office block which previously housed a roofing company. 

After lots of hardwork and determination, the nursery was ready to welcome children in July 2013, we have just celebrated our third birthday and the children numbers are continuing to grow in numbers!
