Welcome to

The Young Ones!

The Young Ones Pre-school nursery, Yeovil, Somerset

Yeovil’s popular Playgroup, After School and Holiday Club.

OFSTED: GOOD! March 2020

Founded over 43 years ago, The Young Ones is securely located in the grounds of Preston Academy, Yeovil.

Starting from small beginnings, The Young Ones now operates out of a very large Portacabin in the grounds of Preston Academy School, Monks Dale, in the north-west corner of
Yeovil, and this also means we are lucky to have a huge and well maintained garden and outside play area which is completely secure and fenced off from the rest of
the school grounds.

Have a good look around our site, especially at our PHOTO GALLERY.

More information can be seen on the ABOUT US and NEWS pages, and enrolment information is on the How to Enrol page.

If you would like to get in touch with us then please see the CONTACT page.

“The Young Ones was my first school – now my children go there!”

I love The Young Ones!

Over 1200 children have passed through The Young Ones.

They have come from families ranging across all ethnic groups living in the Yeovil
area, and we pride ourselves on stimulating cross-cultural integration.

Over the years we have cared for children from the brightest and fittest to those
less fortunate, and our aim has always been to make sure that every child has the
best possible start in school life, regardless of their circumstances.

Above all else, we make absolutely certain they go home happy and inspired.

My Maddie has been coming to The Young Ones for five years.  The staff have been incredibly accommodating and helpful with my child care needs sometimes at very short notice…..I would highly recommend The Young Ones.

I am 8 and I really like the holiday club because we do lots of things like cooking and playing in the garden also painting and drawing.


When I was five I came to The Young Ones. I like playing with my friend Callum.

My son Jordan attended The Young Ones from 6 months to 4 years old….he was very, very happy….now my daughter is there and she's benefiting greatly! I would never choose another playgroup!

I've learnt a lot from The Young Ones. I was very silly and naughty when I first started but now I behave much better and get on with the others thanks to The Young Ones and Jane.

I really enjoy coming here and playing with all my friends.  There are lots of things to play with such as painting and baking.  All the staff are very nice and considerate.


My children have been coming to The Young Ones after-school and holiday club for the last two years.  They have learnt to be independent and have enjoyed mixing with the other children.


I'm six. I like playing with my friend William.  When Jane is not here I miss her.
