Quality, affordable childcare for children from the age of 2.

We welcome any prospective parents who wish to visit us and see how we operate, no appointment necessary.

As a popular pre-school we operate a waiting list. In order to avoid disappointment please make contact early to register your interest, you can put your child's name on our waiting list by completing a holding form or by visiting us.

Zoe Wright, our Pre-School Team Leader, can be contacted by email at or by phone on 01379 788458

The Pre-school is registered for the Nursery Education Grant scheme; for children aged 2 (where eligible) 3-5 years old, we also accept childcare vouchers. For children who are not yet eligible for the childcare vouchers and for supplementary hours we charge £3.60 an hour. Breakfast & After School Club available to Pre-school and Mellis Primary School children 7.45-6.00pm

"Children are happy and enjoy their time at the pre-school. Staff provide a warm and welcoming environment that is well resourced. Staff support children to settle well. Children make friends, build relationships and learn how to share and take turns." Ofsted

" I really do believe you all put in a fantastic amount of incredibly hard work - a true charitable institution that produces very well equipped children we can all be proud off" Parent

"Children develop good imagination skills as they work together and use real tools to build a 'house'." Ofsted

"Children are strongly motivated by staff who are encouraging and supportive. Staff are skilled at asking effective questions to challenge and develop children's thinking." Ofsted
