St Richard's C E Preschool

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

St Richards C E Preschool is a friendly and caring, child-centred setting which offers a high ratio of staff to children. We have a team of qualified staff who provide high quality childcare and education.

The preschool provides a warm and safe environment, where children have a variety of experiences to enable them to learn and play. We do this by providing stimulating activities for the children which are both indoor and outdoor.

We encourage the children to learn and reach their full potential and our skilled practitioners are there to facilitate your child’s learning and development

We operate a key person system which gives your child a special adult who builds a relationship of shared trust and care with you and your child. Each child is respected as an individual and we aim to create a fun and exciting environment.

All staff are first aid trained.

We take children who are not toilet trained and help support you with this journey.

We accept 2 year old and 30 hour funding.

Please give us a call to arrange a visit


Parents who pay are required to pay one week of fees as a deposit. Children in receipt of funded childcare and early learning/education places for 2, 3 or 4 year olds are not required to pay a deposit unless they attend for more than 15 hours. Parents are initially required to complete a registration form and upon admission, parents will be required to attend a settling in meeting with their child's key-worker.
