About us

Kymbrook Pre-School is a community-based charity that provides for the development and early education for up to 22 Pre-School children (2 to 5 year olds). We are located on the site of Kymbrook Primary and open from 8am until 17:30 Monday- Friday, term time only. We also have a holiday club provision which is open to school and Pre-School aged children.We are a registered Charity, regulated by the Charities Commission, and as such any money generates by the Pre-School is used solely to further our aims. We are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and are OFSTED registered, thus we are able to offer a number of fully funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

Our staff are trained and experienced in the care and education of Pre-School children and the ratio of adults to children conforms fully to OFSTED standards. Our strong links with Kymbrook Primary means we are also extremely well placed to help children with the transition from Pre-School to full time education.

As a Pre-School we pride ourselves in providing a safe, secure and stimulating environment in which our children take their first steps in socialising away from home and to achieve this our aims are:

  • To stimulate the imagination and provide education through play, in accordance with the Early Years Alliance and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
  • To encourage children’s self-confidence and develop their personal and social skills
  • To introduce the concepts of problem-solving, numeracy, language and literacy through play
  •  To develop children’s knowledge and understanding of the world through stories, play, experience and discussions
  • To promote each child’s physical and creative development though a varied curriculum using inside and outside spaces.
  • To support children’s development individually and through a differentiated curriculum if required.

*We currently have availability for children aged 2,3 & 4 years old and accept 15 & 30 hours free funding*

We have the capacity to provide childcare for 22 children aged 2, 3 & 4 years old and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which has three prime areas:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

followed by four specific areas of development:                                  

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We support children to develop and learn through play while also providing a range of stimulating activities to support children’s holistic development and individual needs. By doing so, we track and observe children’s development and achievement using Tapestry, please see more about Tapestry in our inclusive extras on our website home page.

We have disabled access and facilities as well as a vast amount of knowledge and experience with special education needs and disabilities (SEND). We do our upmost to ensure every child’s needs are met and therefore, with your consent will liaise with external agencies were appropriate to ensure we are meeting our duty of care for your child.

As we have accept children from 2 years old, we have a nappy changing room and will support you as a family and your child when the time is right to achieve their next milestone of using the toilet/potty.

We are run independently from the school however, work in partnership ensuring children have a smooth transition into Kymbrook Primary, for further information and admission details please visit their website:  https://www.kymbrookprimary.uk/
