Crich Pre-School

Once upon a time there was a very special place where little children loved to go. It was a magical place where they could embark on exciting adventures to far away lands. Where they could be whatever or whoever they wanted to be ….. a princess, a pirate, a dragon, a firefighter. A nurturing place where all children felt safe to explore the world around them. A place to play, learn, care, share, be themselves and make new friends. A place where the highly experienced and caring staff gave the children roots and wings. This isn't a fairy tale. This is CRICH PRE-SCHOOL and we would be delighted for you and your child to join us on their journey of discovery.

We provide high quality care and education for children aged between two and five years. Play underpins all development and learning for young children, therefore, learning through play is at the heart of all that we do. We use the children's interests to create a fun, attractive and welcoming environment where children feel safe and supported to explore the world around them.

Our highly experienced and dedicated staff each have between 9 and 25 years of experience in childcare and are led by a qualified teacher. We understand the importance of the role of the adult in enhancing young children's learning and take great care to operate well above the required adult to child ratios in order to support each and every child on their learning journey.

We aim to ensure the best start in life for all children, by creating an outstanding pre-school at the heart of our community. We encourage prospective families to make an appointment to come and have a look at our setting for themselves.
