We currently have just a few part-time places for children who turn 3 years' old on or before 31st August 2018. If you are interested in a place, please download an application form and return it to us by post or email. Visits are welcomed - please call us on 01235 536061 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange a mutually convenient visit for you and your child(ren).
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five. "It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children's 'school readiness' and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress.." EYFS 2017
St. Nicolas Pre-school is an independent, charity-run preschool and is in partnership with St. Nicolas School Foundation Stage. This is run by a Joint Steering Group which has a parent from each setting among its representatives. This partnership gives our children an opportunity to experience a school environment through our weekly singing sessions in Reception classes, transition visits and our good working relationships with the Headmaster and Reception staff. Our close links encourage a smooth transition into school life.
PLEASE NOTE: Although we work closely with St Nicolas School, attending our pre-school does not guarantee a place at St Nicolas School - you will need to apply separately for a school place if you wish to do so. For more information about St Nicolas Primary school, please contact them directly:
