The Little Owl Pre-School (formerly The University of Reading Pre-School) is one of the longest running pre-schools in the area. We look after children of University Staff and Students, as well as children who live in the surrounding community. Over the years we have built up an excellent reputation for providing the best possible care and education in a safe discreet location.
Following our recent OFSTED inspection we have now been graded as OUTSTANDING.
Some of their comments included:
’staff are extremely positive role models and give consistent guidelines that support children to manage their emotions and to adjust their behaviour around other children… The quality of teaching is outstanding.‘ (ofsted report 6.11.14)
‘Parents give high praise to the provision. Some of the views expressed were, ‘ I am so happy with the pre-school; the staff have really helped my child make good progress’ and ‘my child can’t wait to come’’
The Pre-School is located at the Earley Gate corner of the University of Reading Campus. We have a large, secure private garden with plenty of play equipment for the children. Inside we have a wide variety of toys, creative media, role-play and construction equipment and a large area of space allows freedom of movement and facilitates concentration and communication.
We can accommodate up to 28 children aged from two to five years.
Sessions are available up to five mornings a week during school terms, running from 9:15–12:15.
**We run a lunch club from 12:15-12:55pm every Monday, Wednesday & Friday in the summer term**
