Parents value our friendly and highly qualified and knowledgeable practitioners as well as the wide range of activities open to the children in our care.

We are an established setting set up in our own purpose built building with a dedicated Forest School at the rear of Greatworth Primary School in the village of Greatworth, South Northamptonshire, mid-way between the towns of Banbury and Brackley.


Our Story

Greatworth Pre-School started out as a pack away play group in the school. In 2011 the Pre-School were able to secure their own purpose built building that we occupy today. The Pre-School is a charity based setting being led by a team of highly qualified staff but managed by a team of volunteers made up of parents and the local community. 

In 2019 we were lucky enough to also be able to purchase a new piece of land at the rear of pre-school that is the designated Forest School space.

Philosophy & Mission

To provide an inspirational, caring and outstanding        pre-school facility for the community, where all needs are met and opportunities for all to achieve their full potential are maximised.

Helping Your Child Explore, Grow, & Learn

Here at Greatworth Pre-School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Our emphasis is on developing your child through group and individual sessions in a relaxed and happy atmosphere. Our staff are all highly qualified and we maintain our ratios and numbers at a level to give your child the best experience and to enable them to reach their full potential whilst having fun.

What Our Families are Saying

Lovely setting. Amazing staff. Both of my children have attended and the transition to the primary school (on site) has worked brilliantly. 
They cannot do enough for the children. Highly recommended

My son currently attends Greatworth pre-school and I cannot praise the setting enough!! The staff are amazing and so caring. My son absolutely loves going and settled in really quickly. They do lots of activities and my son is always bringing home lovely things he’s made. I would highly recommend this setting to anyone looking for a pre-school for their son or daughter.

My twins attended this preschool, and I can’t overstate how professional, caring and brilliant the staff were with them. The change in my little ones over the time they spent here was amazing, they had such a good time, and were supported through the Early Years stages so well. It’s in such nice location too!

My daughter went from shy and quiet to confident and now communicates with everyone thanks to the amazing and friendly staff. She loved pre-school and had so much fun as well as learning. Would highly recommend this pre-school.

A fantastic, friendly village pre-school with highly qualified staff in a lovely setting. All 3 of my children settled in quickly, and are always full of stories about what they have been up to – especially Forest School and trips to the allotment!
