Austrey Pre-School is an established setting situated in the grounds of Austrey C of E Primary School located in a beautiful village, enjoying a fantastic community spirit.
Our last OFSTED inspection was on the 2nd July 2013. The overall outcome was “Good”. The report stated that staff demonstrate a clear understanding of how children learn and therefore plan a range of exciting and interesting activities that motivate children to play, learn and have fun.
Healthy eating is very much a focus for children’s learning. Growing their own produce in their allotment, combined with regular well-planned activities, such as food tasting, helps to continually reinforce this ethos.
Children are valued as individuals and as a result , are very confident.
We are registered for twenty children aged from 2 years up to 4 years old. We support all children including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language.
We have three experienced members of staff who work with the children, all of whom hold an appropriate qualification and a first aid certificate. Further details can be found on our Meet The Staff page.
The Preschool is a registered charity run by a Committee of supportive parents who meet throughout the year and offer their valuable expertise.
We moved to a new building in January 2010, which contains a Children’s Centre, offers disabled access and benefits from a large outdoor learning space and an allotment. Our children continue their learning outside growing their own fruit and vegetables.
We work in partnership with the school on the adjoining site making the transition to primary school seamless.
