It’s shape week. We are looking at and talking about different shapes. You can help your child when you are out and about by looking for different shapes in the environment… traffic signs, packaging in the supermarket, windows, doors etc.

The snow trend continues this is the fourth year running that snow has coincided with our ‘Winter’ topic!! Unfortunately, it didn’t stay for very long and there wasn’t enough to go sledging or build a snowman. But the children were very excited to see it! There isn’t any more forecast 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 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
