About Organisation

We are based at the Prince of Wales Preschool Centre where we have our own playroom and outdoor space and are fortunate to have shared use of facilities including the soft play area, sensory room and hydrotherapy pool.

Our voluntary Board of Trustees manages an experienced and motivated staff team led by Manager, Nyree Gibbs.

Our regular programme includes our experienced staff helping children develop good communication skills using a range of methods including Signalong and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), as well as music therapy, swimming in the hydrotherapy pool and gymnastics and movement sessions.

We provide a minibus collection service (subject to availability) for those who would otherwise find it difficult to access the service and support for parents, families and carers in the form of workshops, training and regular coffee mornings.

We received a judgement of Outstanding in all areas at our 2018 OFSTED inspection.

We work closely with other pre-schools, schools and professionals to enable a successful transition to a child’s local preschool or school when the time comes. Some children will attend both Dorchester Opportunity Group and their local preschool, on different days of the week.

We are registered with OFSTED and accept children aged from 2 to 4 years. All children accommodated at the group are referred by professionals from health, education or children’s services where specialist input and support given at an early stage in the child’s development could prove beneficial.
