Back to normal (fingers crossed)

Well what a week we’ve just had!  Ofsted on Monday and then a snow day on Thursday.  Hopefully that will be it for snow this winter and the Beast from the East has passed over.  Did you manage to get out with your children sledging?  Or did you make a Snowman?  If you have any pictures we would love to see them, perhaps your child could bring a photograph to show everyone and talk about their experience.


What’s your favourite book?

Posted by admin on February 26, 2018

We have a busy week ahead, looking at different types of books and making up stories.  We are particularly celebrating British children’s writers including Julia Donaldson, Roald Dahl, Sue Hendra, Judith Kerr, Jill Murphy, AA Milne, Lauren Child, Rev.W.Awdry – to name but a few.  Do you have any of their books at home?  On Thursday it’s National Book day – have you decided which character to dress up as?  The ladies are busy thinking of what they will wear.

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
