Pre-school closure update

As schools are now starting to re-open to some degree, albeit in a phased manner with strict social distancing, we have been speaking with the church council to review our situation. We thought it best to make a decision now so you can plan the rest of your summer.

The church council feel that it would not be possible to re-open The Family Centre without a lot of money being spent deep cleaning and applying lots of restrictions relating to low numbers.  So they have decided not to open The Family Centre just yet.

We therefore cannot open until September at the earliest. This at least guarantees that your child is not put at any unnecessary risk.

With best wishes, Chloe Lymn-Rose – Chair of St Mary’s Pre-School on behalf of the staff and Committee.


We are proud of our ‘OUTSTANDING’ rating with OFSTED!

This is a credit to all the hard work our staff and committee members put in over the years.

Here are some quotes from our last OFSTED report:

Parents speak highly of the pre-school and are pleased with their children’s progress. They praise the warm and welcoming atmosphere and the dedicated members of staff.


The manager and her team demonstrate a strong commitment to the continuous improvement of the pre-school.
