CURRENT STAFF VACANCIES: We are looking for a new Manager/Early Years Teacher and a qualified Early Years Practitioner. We also have an apprenticeship vacancy. Please contact us for further details.
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.
At our last OFSTED inspection we were graded as OUTSTANDING.
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 are passionate about children’s creativity and are inspired by the pre-schools of Reggio Emilia and the Forest School Programme. We use aspects of these philosophies 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, running from 9:15–12:15. We also run a lunch club from 12:15-12:55pm every Monday, Wednesday & Friday**
