Children are greeted enthusiastically by the staff team. Staff provide a safe, welcoming and stimulating learning environment for children, inside and outside.

Children settle quickly into play, are happy and enjoy their time at this friendly preschool. They are interested in the activities, engage in learning and demonstrate enthusiasm and curiosity in their play. For example, older children eagerly tell staff where their car lands after they push it down the guttering channel they have built. This then becomes a game to see whose car travels the furthest.

Staff engage well with children and have high expectations of their behaviour, and as a result, children behave very well. Children’s voices are listened to and valued by the nurturing staff team. Children happily take turns and share toys and often say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ without being prompted. Staff support children’s communication and language development appropriately.

The manager, who is a good role model for staff, carefully asks open-ended and thought-provoking questions to engage and entice children in conversation. During small-world imaginative play, children tell the manager about who lives in the pretend house and what their characters are doing.



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!
