Welcome to the Grange Pre-School
“Working with parents to give children a happy, confident start to life”
The Grange Pre-School, Southcote was founded in 1967 and believes that every child deserves a high quality of care and education; we are dedicated to the care and development of your child. We encourage the children to learn through play and by having fun.
We are a parent led Pre-School. This means that the parents/carers on the management committee lead the Pre-School. The parents/carers elect a chair person, a treasurer, secretary and committee members who jointly make the decisions and are responsible to Ofsted. It means the Pre-School belongs to the people who use it!
We are registered with Ofsted, members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and a registered charity.
Our aim is to support you and your child by providing a safe, happy and caring environment where your child will grow in confidence and knowledge.
The Grange Pre-School will provide flexible, affordable childcare to all, in a safe and supportive environment, working together with parents/carers in partnership.
It is our intention to make our Pre-School accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community regardless of ethnicity, gender, special education needs, disabilities, background, religion or competence in spoken English.
We will ensure that our service is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children. We recognise that children and their families come from diverse backgrounds. All families have needs and values that arise from their social and economic, ethnic and cultural or religious backgrounds. Children grow up in diverse family structures that include two parent and one parent families; some children have two parents of the same sex. Some children have close links with extended families of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins while others may be more removed from close kin or may live with other relatives or foster carers. Some children have needs that arise from disability or impairment or may have parents that are affected by disability or impairment.
Our Pre-School is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families. We work in accordance with all relevant legislation.
