Little Owls Community Preschool

The high ratio of staff to children and our purpose-built facility enables us to provide our children with high quality play and education. Through careful planning and enhancement of the play environment, varied activities ensure we meet the needs of all children in our care in accordance with their stage of development and the now statutory Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. We are registered to take children from 2 to 5 years of age and have close links with Owlsmoor Primary School, as well as all other local nursery and primary schools, to support a smooth transition from pre-school to nursery or the start of reception. Children can do morning or afternoon or all day sessions this may change to comply with Government Guidelines following the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

Local Offer Description

Little Owls opened in 1982 and has operated from its present purpose built building in Owlsmoor (building area 130.46m²) since May 2011.  We are situated opposite Owlsmoor Primary School on Cambridge Road.  The building is all on one level with a large garden providing a variety of activities including climbing equipment, mud kitchen, digging pit, sand pit as well as an area where we grow vegetables and fruit trees.  We are open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., term time only where a variety of sessions can be attended dependent on availability.  We are in receipt of funding for 3 and 4 year olds, and 2 year olds depending on circumstances.

We believe children learn best through play and sensitive interactions with responsive adults.

The setting operates an 'Open Door' policy and welcome visits from parents/carers during and outside of their child's sessions.
