Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the rat – those people who are born in this year (1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996 and 2008) are said to be industrious and thrifty, diligent and positive. They love to enshrine and collect. They have a keen intuition and can foretell the danger. Which year were you born in? This week we have lots of Chinese based activities planned and the children will have the opportunity to try Chinese food at snack times.

It was great to see everyone back last week. We have loved catching up with you all and hearing everyone’s news. We’ve quickly got back into the swing of our Pre-School routine and we are all back to normal! Have you received your January newsletter? They were sent out last week – please check your ‘inbox’.
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
