Yaxley and Mellis Pre-school

At Yaxley and Mellis Pre-School our aim is to provide the best possible foundation for your child’s education by offering a wealth of activities and experiences within the early years Curriculum. Our staff are enthusiastic, conscientious and work together as a team for the benefit of the children. They are exceptionally trained and qualified. All staff hold Safeguarding, First Aid and Food & Hygiene qualifications, which are renewed every three years.

The Team Leader has reached Level 1 in Forest School outdoor play and learning, which is an innovative approach to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences.

The children and their individual needs are our priority and we aim to provide them with a fun and exciting setting within a safe and welcoming environment.

We are a charity organisation, run by a voluntary committee of parent carers, who provide a supportive network to staff and parents. We are located next door to the local primary school and have an excellent working relationship with them through the Pre-School Partnership. We have full access to their playing fields and nature reserve.  

We provide children with a balanced snack each morning and afternoon and an optional lunch club enables children to either bring their own packed lunch or have a hot lunch freshly cooked at the Primary School.           

In January 2016 we received a rating of GOOD following our Ofsted inspection - see the web-site for details.

We have a redesigned outdoor area, which is a flexible and versatile place where the children can choose, create, change and be in charge of their play environment. Outdoor play also supports children’s problem-solving skills and nurtures their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness.
