Willow Rise Pre-School

We are a charity run pre-school offering sessional places from 9.15 to 12.15, Monday to Friday, term time only, for children aged from 2 until they are almost 5. We also offer a lunch club on a Monday and Wednesday until 1 o'clock for all 3 and 4 year olds. We offer free funding to all 3 and 4 year old children and also for those 2 year old children that are eligible for the Free for 2 funding, certain criteria is required. If parents are eligible for the 30 hour free funding we are able to offer 1.5 hours on top of the 15 hours universal funding to cover both the lunch clubs. Our pre-school operates in Downswood Community Centre where we have exceptional outdoor space for the children to enjoy. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage to encourage your child to progress and develop in all areas of learning. We have 6 members of staff who are all Level 2 or Level 3 qualified, first aid trained and DBS checked. All of our staff are enthusiastic, caring pre-school practitioners and have your child's best interests at heart to help them grow and develop, getting them ready for when they progress onto school.
