Welcome to St Chad’s Pre-School

Our ‘Aunties’ create a warm and caring environment that helps support your child in making the most of their abilities and talents. To assist us, we incorporate the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS).

We are registered and inspected by Early Years Ofsted (our 2018 visit saw us being rated as ‘Good’ – our most recent report can be found here) and we are also a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance. ​
