PreSchools and Playgroups for Paignton

Preston Community Pre-School

Preston Baptist Church/Old Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2RB, UK – 01803 520712

Preston Community Preschool has been great for my two children; nurturing, friendly, supportive and encouraging. The setting has a great outdoor space, which the children are encouraged to explore. There are always an array of activities on offer for the children, which are different every day. It’s really helped my children to become independent learners. Although it took a while for my son to settle, his key worker went over and above to help him ease into preschool life. My youngest went in on her first day and didn’t look back...!

Paignton Community & Sports Academy

Borough Rd, Paignton TQ4 7DH, UK – 01803 403003

Whilst this School doesn't have the greatest reputation, I loved my 5 years at Paignton Community and Sports College. I achieved 12 A-C grade GCSEs and ABB at A-Level. The opportunities I was given at this school were amazing, particularly the sporting events I was awarded. Teachers were always supportive of students wanting to learn, and pastoral support was always available. Considering this is a very large comprehensive School, I always felt welcome and never one of the masses.

Ok school, good teachers good students and great grades, got some great options for your kids and has got great clubs, this is the school to join

Buckingham Dance Studios

Rear of Littlegate Road, Paignton TQ3 3AZ, UK – 07917 848081

Highly recommend Buckingham dance studios my son Harrison started here at 3 years old and still always looks forward to his ballet class, he also takes part in the festivals and it has been amazing to see how his confidence has grown. I have now started my 2 year old daughter Lily in ballet due to being so impressed with how Harrison has grown into such a confident young man. All the teachers make you feel really welcome a wonderful place to learn the art of dance and become part of a real team.

My daughter has been dancing at Buckingham Dance Studios for over 5 years now. I've watched her confidence grow and grow, from starting dance as a very shy little girl, to thoroughly enjoying performing on stage at the Princess Theatre and competing at the dance festival competitions in group and solo dances. She enjoys every minute and loves being part of a great team at Buckingham Dance Studios.

Language Schools

LAL Language Centres

Conway Rd, Paignton TQ4 5LH, UK – 01803 558555

Took my DELTA here in 2017 and worked here in 2018. A good school with high standards. It has a great atmosphere, a range of international students and a great teaching staff.

It's a sad day to leave this place. I will miss him so much. Everything was beautiful and wonderful. Except organised tour. Administration, teachers, reception and student affairs are of a high level of science and efficiency. They have excellent coordination with families. Where good families are chosen with very suitable furniture. Why I didn't like organizing tour? Because they only appreciate some people. The school is big and it is possible to make friends from all over the world. Thank you so much LAL school. If I were allowed I would give this place seven stars not only five. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The school is located in a tourist area. So I left some pictures for this area.
