St Helen's Preschool is run by an elected committee of parents/carers and a fully qualified manager, assisted by qualified preschool practitioners and experienced/in-training preschool assistants. Parental involvement is actively encouraged at whatever level individual parents are happy with.

We are located on the St Helen's School site, in the "Terrapin" unit with a seperate exit to the rear allowing access to the school field and grounds

We welcome children from two to four years of age and can accept government funded places from the age of three. Please refer to our Fees and Funding section.

The preschool has been assessed by Ofsted. We work with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The progress of children is recorded, assessed and shared with parents/carers on a regular basis.

We are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance (PSLA) and Children’s Playlink. We have a Healthy Pre-school Award for our encouragement of a healthy lifestyle. The preschool is also part of the HENRY programme (Health, Exercise, Nutrition for the Really Young).
