It was great to see photographs of family members last week, thank you to everyone who sent them in.  It was a lovely opportunity for children to ‘show and tell’ at carpet time; they proudly stood at the front of the class and talked about their family and when and where the pictures were taken.


It’s raining again!

It’s a bit of a wet start to another great week at Greenacre.  All of our new children are settling in nicely and the children who have been with us some time are stepping up and helping the newer ones.  Friendships are starting to build and it’s wonderful to see children already progressing.  Our target at the moment is to remember our please and thank you’s and we already have lots of stars on our ‘Reason to Celebrate’ board, please continue to encourage your children at home.

Our Team

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 greenacrecommittee(at)hotmail.co.uk

Registered Charity: 1075211
