Our History

image1 2.JPG

Opened in 1987, Grasshopper Pre School, located in Castle Donington, is a registered charity pre school catering to two to four year olds.


Set in the Old School House, within the grounds of Castle Donington Academy, the staff of Grasshopper Pre School work hard to continuously provide a stimulating environment which caters to the needs of all children. Across our past three OFSTED inspections, we have received two outstanding reports and one good.

As can be seen in the gallery, the inside of the Old School House provides a bright and entertaining environment for children to learn and play in. As well as this, Grasshoppers boasts an expansive outdoor playing environment, including a covered area for all weathers, climbing frame, astro turfed playing area, and a new woodlands area where children can climb trees and explore nature, all in a secure and safe setting.

More information on what we aim to provide your child can be found on the Curriculum page.
