What a difference a week makes – our butterflies eventually broke out of their cocoons and were released into the big wide world on Friday. They were a bit hesitant at first, but they eventually flew off into the sun. The children loved watching them fly away and some were even lucky enough for the butterflies to land on them!

Thank you to everyone who came into Pre-School last week wearing the colour of the day. It was good to talk about the different colours and shades. This week is healthy eating week, so we will be talking about foods which are healthy and those which we shouldn’t eat too much of. Also, this week we will be planting cress seeds - each child will have their own little pot so please help them to look after it when they bring it home.
At the sharp end
Greenacre Pre-School is managed by Julie Thornton and staffed by a team of seven. The experienced caring staff are dedicated to making children, happy, safe and ready for school.
Staff are fully qualified to level 3 or above in childcare and all have had enhanced DBS checks. Qualified first aiders are available at each session.
We offer a ratio of 1 staff member to 5 children, which far exceeds the Ofsted recommendation of 1 to 8 allowing staff to spend more time with the children.
The Pre-School committee
Greenacre Pre-School is a voluntary committee with a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary and other committee members recruited from Pre-School parents. This gives them the opportunity to have an input into the further development and progress of the Pre-School. The committee can be contacted by email
Registered Charity: 1075211
In March 2018 Ofsted judged Greenacre Pre-school as a Good provison. We are extremely proud of this achievement. If you would like to read the report download here EY306365 Ofsted report March 2018.pdf
