At Kirkroyds Pre-school we provide a happy, friendly, welcoming, child centred environment in which children can learn and have fun.  We believe that if children are happy, have good self-esteem and are provided with a stimulating environment, then each individual will reach their full potential both personally, socially and intellectually.  We provide an attractive, inspiring and fun environment which is safe and secure.  Our children learn through play and choose their own activities. The children can choose to play indoors or outdoors and we play outside come rain or shine!

Each child is valued as an individual and our very well qualified Key Persons plan activities based on the interests and needs of the children in our setting.  Our high adult to child ratio (minimum of 1:6) enables staff to get to know the children very well and track each child’s progress and development in their own record of achievement book.

“..the pre-school ensures that children thrive and are assured of the best possible outcomes” Ofsted 2011

Children usually attend Kirkroyds Pre-school from the age of 3 and this means that, depending on the needs of the child, we are able to plan more challenging activities for the older pre-school child.  At Kirkroyds we encourage independence, turn taking and sharing and help to get children ready to move onto school.  We have very good links with the local infant schools.

Kirkroyds Pre-school welcomes parents and encourages voluntary involvement.  As a registered charity we are run as a community group by a committee of parents and staff.

We have had a wonderful experience at pre-school (both my child and I) My child enjoys herself and I feel confident leaving her knowing that she will be happy. I would strongly recommend it and will definitely be putting my younger daughter on the waiting list – thank you” Parent, 2010/2011

I like Playing in the cafe, drawing and painting and doing maths with Mrs Smith. Playing outside because I like the pirate ship and the climbing wall.” Child aged 4, 2010/2011


All my children have had a great start and experience at Kirkroyds Pre-school and I can’t praise it highly enough” Parent, 2009/2010
