We are a well-established community preschool based in North Cave Village Hall since 1967. The setting is community based with voluntary management, the day to day running is managed by Julie Tooke and her team of highly qualified, motivated and experienced practitioners. We offer children a child-led, rich, varied and imaginative learning experience.  We have an open door policy where parents/carers are welcome to come and look around the setting without prior booking...

Ofsted: GOOD

  • Parents are highly complementary about the pre-school
  • Parents are regularly asked for their views and invited to special event days that help to build a sense of community
  • There is an open and positive culture around safeguarding that puts children's interests first
  • Children are very independent and take great pride in being able to do things for themselves
  • Mathematical language and counting are skilfully interwoven into children's play and learning

Care, kindness and patience are second to none. We are very happy and lucky to have found such a wonderful preschool.
