Accreditation and training
We are registered and are routinely inspected by Ofsted (Office of Standards in Education and Development) against the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
We are currently graded as an Outstanding setting. You can click here to see a copy of our latest Ofsted report (November 2019).
Our sessions are designed to meet stringent requirements for high-quality care, early learning and child development.
We take a maximum of 24 children per session, and maintain a minimum staff-to-child ratio of 1:4 for 2 year olds and 1:8 for children aged 3 and over. However, depending on enrollments, we aim to have a higher staff-to-child ratio for the over 3s of 1:5, allowing staff to better meet the individual needs of all the children
The pre-school is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and has formally adopted their 2011 constitution.
We work closely with West Berkshire Council’s Early Years Service team to keep our staff up to date and to extend our expertise. Many courses are also available to parents and committee members and will be displayed on the notice board at pre-school.
Management and administration
The Pre-School is managed and run by a fully qualified team of staff, who are supported by a voluntary committee of parents.
