‘To be the best that you can be’


Saplings Preschool is located within St Lawrence’s Primary School, in the beautiful village of Westbury-Sub-Mendip. 'Saplings' launched in October 2018 to serve the communities of Easton, Priddy, Westbury-Sub-Mendip and beyond.


Our ethos is child-led learning focused on the natural world, creativity and play, allowing Saplings children to open their imaginations as they grow in confidence. 


The Saplings classroom is within its own gated area of the site with a fantastic outdoor space which we are currently developing into an exciting playful, nature-focused extension of the classroom.
