Our Pre-School

Our Vision 'To nurture the children to enable them to fulfil their potential'

Ofsted rated as GOOD "Children delight in accessing skillfully planned activities in well resourced indoor and outdoor environments"

We have been part of the Roberttown Community for 35 years and are staffed by experienced, well trained, qualified and caring practitioners.

Our aim at Roberttown Lane Pre-school is to provide a caring friendly environment which is safe and stimulating, where the children develop as individuals. We strive to build positive relationships with parents and carers and actively encourage parental involvement, regardless of race, culture, religion or means.

We pride ourselves on our philosophy of learning through play, giving every child the opportunity to access a wide range of age and ability appropriate experiences. Supported by adults and the EYFS we help them to develop and learn in their own style and at their own pace.

Our ultimate goal is to nurture the children in our care to enable them to fulfil their potential and help them to prepare intellectually, emotionally and socially for the next steps in their lives.

Our staff are all qualified and very experienced and more importantly are mums themselves so they know exactly what it is like for your little person – and for you as a parent.

As well as being Ofsted Registered 311342, we are part of the Pre-school Learning Alliance.
