What a lovely weekend we’ve just had – did you manage to get out for an autumnal walk? Our children went out for a walk on Friday to have a look at all the changes happening at this time of year. We saw different coloured leaves, picked lots of apples, found some beechnuts and thistles and then sang autumn songs in the shelter.

We had some interesting chats last week about bones and the skeleton. Some children were really fascinated with the names of bones and where they are in the body – perhaps we have doctors and nurses in the making. We have had so much fun with role play in the hospital – there were some interesting injuries and remedies!! Has your child been talking to you at home about what they have learnt? Did you learn the skeleton song?
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 November 2014 Ofsted judged Greenacre Pre-school as a Good provison with areas of Outstanding. We are extremely proud of this achievement.
