Pre-School Place Availability

We are now taking registrations for places in September 2022.


Welcome to Crawshay Pre-School

Crawshay Pre-School offers early years education for all children from the age of about 2½ until they start primary school. Within a safe and warm environment, the children learn to socialise, experiment, express themselves and problem solve. It is the first step on the road to independence.

We provide a diverse, vibrant programme and your child works towards common goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage. We create an environment where your child can create, explore, imagine and learn. We offer a broad range of educational opportunities and provide experiences that enrich your child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, cognitive and creative abilities. We aim to foster your child’s uniqueness and individuality.

We set the foundations of your child’s first steps on their academic journey which can serve as the basis for all future learning.

Crawshay Pre-School is registered with Ofsted for day care during term time and we are regularly inspected by them. Our latest Ofsted inspection took place in March 2017.
