St Loys Pre School

Places currently available: Sessions are booked via the pre-school manager please call school office on 01327 860539 or email pre-school@stloys.co.uk .

Our Pre School offers outstanding care and facilities, providing a safe and happy springboard for your child’s education and has been rated as OUTSTANDING in the last two OFSTED inspections.

Situated within the beautiful grounds of St Loys Primary Academy, we benefit from close links with the day to day aspects of school and community life. Our pre school children enjoy coming into school to use the spacious hall and its equipment, joining school for assemblies and sharing lunchtime with their older peers. This natural integration helps ensure a smooth, familiar transition into school life when they make the progression into Hedgehog Class.

Pre School Learning and Development

Our dedicated, experienced staff expertly guide children in all areas of early learning, including mark making and sensory play. Children often explore a variety of mediums, including sand, shaving foam, bubble paint, jelly and salt dough.

There are lots of stimulating activities to encourage fine motor skills, writing and communication. There is open access to the resource trolleys, including sticking, gluing and painting.

Our continuous provision always includes a role-play area taking different themes to stimulate imaginary play. These have included dinosaurs, homes, cafes and offices.

“We’ve noticed a real leap in our daughter’s development since starting at preschool. We are really happy that she’s now in a good place to start school.”


” Plenty of time is spent actively in the outside world discovering nature when play and learning is at its best”

“As parents, both my husband and I have been blown away by the care and support offered at St Loys preschool. We believe that St Loys provides children with a wonderful, happy, safe and nurturing environment to help them grow and flourish….staff really care about the children as individuals.”

We have our own wooded area with mud kitchen, large sandpit, water play and a safety floor for trikes and bikes.

“We are really grateful for everything that the team at St Loys has done for our child. I know that she is being cared for and looked after at all times. Above all else, she is happy! She loves going to preschool and we couldn’t ask for anything more than that!”
