About Us:  Kintbury Pre-School

Kintbury Pre-school was first established in 1976 by a group of local parents who wished to be more involved with the development of their children, and to this day we encourage parents to be fully involved with the setting and the progress of their children.

Location

We are based in the heart of the village in the Preston Hall, just a few paces from the Primary School with which we have very close links.  Pre-school children who are due to start school make regular visits to the school reception class particularly in the summer term to gain confidence in the environment and to spend time with the class teacher.

Venue

The Preston Hall is a bright, spacious venue with a fully secure all-weather outdoor play area.  We have wonderful facilities with mud kitchens, sand pits, obstacle courses, ride ons, a football/basketball court, cooking equipment, a home corner, a reading corner, a maths area, motor-skills tables, climbing equipment, toys, games, puzzle...everything eager young minds might require to inspire, excite and engage them. 

Governance

We are governed by the Pre-school Learning Alliance constitution and are registered with OFSTED. The Pre-school is managed by a parent committee which is elected annually at the AGM in September.

Our Aims
  • To offer through play, a wide range of activities in a stimulating and safe environment to help children learn and develop to their full potential.

  • To encourage independence, a positive self-image and to have a sense of fun in a group where children are happy and want to be.

  • To meet all children’s needs, giving equal consideration to all and promoting good manners.

  • To develop and maintain a friendly relationship with all parents/carers and to be an organisation which they want to promote.

Every Child a Talker (ECAT) is a national project to develop the language and communication of children from birth to five years of age. The project was set up after concern about the high levels of ‘language impoverishment’ in the UK, and how this affects children’s progress in school and chances in life.

ECAT strategies and resources are designed to help you to create a supportive and stimulating environment within your provision in which children can enjoy experimenting with and learning language. We are very lucky to have amember of staff fully trained in this and leads the other staff with activites to encourage our children.

ECAT will encourage the development of early language through everyday fun and interesting activities which reflect children’s interests and enable them to become confident and skilled communicators.
