About Us


The Ark at Tresillian (formally known as Tresillian Early Years) is an established Early Years Setting operated and managed by skilled early years practitioners and is part of The Exwick Ark family of nurseries. The Pre-school has been running for over 30 years, with the Nursery being added in the year 2000 and the Toddler Room enhancing provision further since 2018. The setting is located in the centre of Kingsbridge in a large Victorian House with high ceilings and light airy rooms, creating a unique home from home learning environment. Outside play is offered daily in our beautiful grounds which features play equipment and learning opportunities suitable for all ages. The setting is also situated on the same site as the Kingsbridge Community Garden, which we can access to learn more about the natural world. Our main function is to provide full day care for children from birth to 5 years. As part of this we are registered and regulated by Ofsted and all aspects of our provision is underpinned by the guidance outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

Aims and objectives 

Our aim is to provide high quality child care and education that meets the needs of local families. 

We will do this by: 

  • To provide a safe, fun and challenging learning environment that meets the needs of every child and family, regardless of background, gender or ability.
  • To provide flexible childcare that enables parents to access training, employment and welfare support. 
  • To maintain high standards of care and education, that demonstrates a commitment to standards significantly above those required by OFSTED 
  • To build strong working relationships with parents and carers and acknowledge their role as the primary educators of their child 
  • To work co-operatively with local Primary Schools and other providers of services for families
