Ashwater Pre-School

Ashwater Pre-School

Ashwater Pre-School is the perfect setting for your 2 – 4 year old to play, explore and learn. It is part of our teacher led Foundation Stage Unit, which means that transition into Reception is seamless and your child will be very ready for school, both socially and academically. We are a school for 2-11 year olds so our pre-school children  have access to all the additional opportunities such as eating a hot lunch in the dining hall as well as Wild Tribe outdoor learning, which is similar to ‘forest school’. In addition the pre-school children join in with our specialist dance, performing arts, yoga and PE teachers. We always include the pre-school children in whole school special events, such as Sports Day, Christmas Nativity and our recent, African Drumming Workshop.


The pre-school children love to receive awards in our Celebration Assembly and enjoy playing with older peers in the playground. This gives a real sense of safety and wellbeing for the pre-school children, as the older children really do demonstrate our school motto by ‘Taking Care of Each Other’.


Please see the information below for further details and if you are thinking about Ashwater Pre-School for your child, please email or telephone the school office and we will arrange for Mrs Alford, the Executive Headteacher to call you and tell you little more about us.


We warmly encourage all parents and prospective pupils to come for a visit to get a real flavour of our school and meet members of staff and current pupils. Individual tours with Mrs Alford, will be arranged.
