Situated in the small picturesque Pennine village of Oxenhope, West Yorkshire, Oxenhope Pre-School has been serving the local community for in excess of 40 years.
We are based in Oxenhope Community Centre and are ten miles west of Bradford, five miles south of Keighley and close to the popular Brontë village of Haworth.
We pride ourselves in providing a fun environment for pre-schoolers aged 2 ½ - 4 years to learn through play whilst being supervised by our qualified and experienced pre-school staff. We also have places available for 2 year olds that qualify for government funding. If you are not sure if you are eligible for this then please contact us to discuss.
FREE places are available to 3 and 4 year olds through the government free nursery places scheme and we are one of the few local pre-school provisions who accept children from the age of 2 ½, for a small fee which we maintain at a very competitive rate
Our pre-school is very much a part of the local community being run by a volunteer committee who live in the surrounding areas. It has been run this way since it was started in 1960 by a group of local mums who recognized the need for a local provision for their pre-school children..
We provide a happy, relaxing environment where good behaviour is encouraged and the children are given the freedom to explore the many activities available, from painting to playdough, dolls to dinosaurs and tricycles to toy kitchens to name but a few.
Recognising the needs of small children, a mid-morning snack and drink are also provided to keep them fuelled up to enjoy their morning to the full.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to track your child's development and plan our activities. We are registered and monitored by Ofsted. Our most recent Ofsted report from October 2014 graded us as 'Good' and said that "children are happy and settled and make good progress".
As well as the committee all parents are an important part of the pre-school and we encourage each parent to spend a morning with us, once every half term, to play with the children and assist staff by preparing the daily snack. There is a parent rota to complete.
We have provision for 30 pre-school places and can accommodate children of all abilities as our staff are trained and qualified to work with children with special educational needs. Our building is wheel chair accessible.
Oxenhope Pre-School is a registered charity and fundraising forms an important part of our activities. Our fundraising events are primarily aimed at providing fun extracurricular activities for the children, such as our popular under 7s discos which are held regularly throughout the year.
We have put together this web-site to assist all of our existing parents and any new or potential parents who are looking for a quality pre-school provision in Oxenhope and the surrounding areas, such as Haworth, Denholme, Stanbury and Cullingworth to name but a few.
