January has almost come to an end and Christmas is now a memory away. This week we will be making lots of noise as we will be playing different instruments and listening to the sounds they make. The children will also have the opportunity to make their own instrument and join our little band. Do you play an instrument? Could you bring it in and play it to the children? If you can please let a member of staff know when you are able to come in.

The snow trend continues – yes it was only a few flakes and it didn’t last for long, but it was still snow!! This is the fifth year running that snow has coincided with our ‘Wintery’ topics!! It remains to be seen if we get any more - but just in case it snows again you can check out ‘Our Parents’ page on our website to see any changes to our opening hours.
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
