Stanwix Community Pre-School

Stanwix Community Pre-School is an early years pre-school setting operating term time only. We are a charity organisation managed by a committee made up of our parents/carers.

We take children from the age of 2 years 6 months to the age of 4. We only accept 2 year old funded children, in exceptional circumstances.

We are open from 8:30am until 3:30pm and have a varied selection of sessional hours we can offer you during these times.

Children and parents/carers are well supported by highly qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated early years practitioners. Becky Clarkson and Rhona Hammond are the pre-school leaders. All staff members hold a full and relevant level 3 in early years and hold a first aid paediatric certificate.

We have a clear vision for our pre-school and work hard to ensure that we create an inclusive environment where individuals are respected and valued. Our setting makes use of its space and resources to provide a range of varied and practical activities that help our children learn while they play.

We were rated 'good' in our 2017 Oftsed inspection

"Children are happy, confident and secure within the setting"

The continuity of care and learning for children is particularly strong, because parents and carers are made to feel very welcome in the setting and kept fully informed of their children's progress.

"The management of the setting is very effective and excellent communication with outside agencies means that children are fully supported in preparation for their next stage in learning."
