We hope you all had a lovely long weekend and enjoyed the sun. Our topic this week is ‘People who help us’ and we have lots of activities for the children to enjoy. The home corner is a hospital and we already have some very helpful doctors and nurses – and some very willing patients!

What a great week we’ve just had. Our tadpoles are getting bigger and racing around their bowl – did you know they eat cat biscuits? Then our caterpillars arrived on Friday, they have had a long journey from Cornwall and are settling into their new environment! The garden is looking lovely now the flowers are coming out (thank you to everyone who donated bulbs last year) and we’ve been out searching for mini-beasts.
At the sharp end
Greenacre Pre-School is managed by Julie Thornton and staffed by a team of eight. 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
