Our team is made up of highly qualified and enthusiastic individuals who are all passionate about providing outstanding levels of care. Through our child-led approach we provide a stimulating and nurturing environment for young children to truly flourish.

We are a committee led charity where the majority, if not all of the committee is made up of parents of children who attend the pre-school. Fundraising is an essential part of what the committee do.

Our preschool is located in the Pavilion, Long Lane, Stoke Holy Cross, which is opposite the primary school. There is ample car parking adjacent to the Pavilion and also a playing field and a well equipped playground which we use regularly.

We have an outside play area with a variety of stimulating and learning activities including a mud kitchen, sand pit, playhouse and balance bikes.

We are inspected regularly by Ofsted. Our last inspection took place on 5th February 2019 where we received a ‘Good’ rating. A copy of this report is available to view here or at any Pre-School session.

Our group is registered with Ofsted Early Years for up to 12 children per session, the minimum age being two years and six months, and the maximum being statutory school age.

The number of sessions your child attends is flexible, although for your child to gain maximum benefit, we recommend that at least two sessions be attended.

Prior to starting, we offer a home visit; we have found this a fantastic insight to the child’s life at home.

Before joining the Pre-School the parents and their child/children are invited to attend a ‘Stay and Play’ session, which will help to settle the child in. This provides an opportunity for all to meet our staff and other parents.
