News & Events

YMCA Maidstone has a well-run Pre-School within the Tovil Community Centre.

Ours is a unique pre-school with a warm and caring approach and a large garden, wildlife area and court, which the children have daily access to.

Managed by professional and friendly qualified staff who are Paediatric First Aid trained to ensure the best care for your child.  

The Pre-School also uses the Early Years Foundation Stage to help with your child’s social and educational development. Children may attend up to 2 sessions a day.

    YMCA Pre-School is in receipt of free early education funding for two, three and four year olds.  The Government provides 15 hours free early education a week for all 3 and 4 year olds from the term after their 3rd birthday. Subject to certain criteria, children of working parents may also be eligible to claim an additional 15 hours of free entitlement.

    We offer a number of these 30 hour free childcare places. We are also able to claim up to 15 hours free early education for your 2 year olds and the early year’s pupil premium for 3 and 4 year old children if you are in receipt of certain benefits.

    If you think you may be eligible for any of these then please speak to the Pre-School Manager or visit

    For more information and details of our current availability, please contact the centre on 01622 749404 and ask to speak to Vanessa Burns.

    We are happy to arrange an appointment to come and see the pre-school and meet our friendly staff team at a time convenient for you.

    “My child has settled into preschool wonderfully, I am so grateful to all the staff that has worked with him to settle him in. You have all showed him comfort and reassurance and K is so excited to come to school every day. I would also like to say thank you for his first day memory art, it is such a wonderful piece of art that I will continue to treasure through the years. I may have not been able to share his first day with him but you have with me. I am so pleased with his speech, he is improving daily with pronunciation of words and learning a new word or words each day.”

    “Brillant Pre-school, cannot thing of any improvments needed”
