grove pre school-stanway pre school

The Grove Pre-school has been operating in Stanway for over 40 years during which time we have prepared generations of children for school. Ofsted have described us as “a happy caring pre-school”. Our aim is to educate and nurture children in partnership with parents at our community based group.

We provide a safe, stimulating and secure environment both inside and out of doors ensuring equality of opportunity for all.

Sessions are guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which enables each child to follow their own learning journey and fulfil their potential. Small groups of just twenty and our key person approach ensure that we give ample time to each child.

We believe in learning through play and play-based activities.


‘In play children learn at their highest level’ (Department for Children, Schools, and Families – Early Years Foundation Stage –H.M. Government).


Our sessions provide for children from two to five years.  Different payment schemes are available, and we are happy to accept childcare vouchers. In the term following their third birthday children qualify for  free government funded places.
