The Little Owl Pre-School (formerly The University of Reading Pre-School) is one of the longest running pre-schools in the area. At our last OFSTED inspection we were graded as OUTSTANDING. 

The Pre-School is  located at The Scout and Guide HQ, 163, Northcourt Avenue, Reading, RG2 7HG. We have a large, secure private garden where we encourage children to be physically active and learn through contact with nature. Our indoor learning space encourages independence, as children have free access to books, creative media, role-play and construction equipment. There is plenty of space to allow freedom of movement which facilitates concentration and communication. We are passionate about children’s creativity and are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.  We use aspects of this philosophy in our work with children.

We accommodate up to 28 children aged from two to five years. Sessions are available up to five mornings a week during school terms,  9:30 – 12:30. We also run a lunch club on various days of the week until 13.15.

If you’d like to come and visit the school, please ring, text or e-mail us and we will  arrange a mutually agreeable day and time.
