Parents & Families

We acknowledge and respect the parents/carers role in a child’s early development and aim to work in partnership with you to make your child’s time at Elm Road Pre-School a successful and enjoyable experience.


We provide a half termly newsletter by email, keeping parents informed of our topics, future events, important dates and any other relevant information.


A keyworker will be assigned to your child when you come to one of our open days. The keyworker is there to help your child settle into Pre-School and support them through the early years foundation stage.  The keyworker will be available for you should you have any concerns or issues you may wish to discuss.  We have regular formal reviews of your child’s progress. 


We work very closely with our feeder schools for your child’s transition. We invite teachers to come and meet the children that will be moving to their setting, by doing this we have found it helps the children have a much smoother transition.

Equal opportunities

We provide equal opportunities for all children and families and believe group activities should be open to children, families and to all adults committed to their welfare. 

Parent Testimonials

We feel so lucky that our sons have been able to attend Elm Rd Pre-School. They have had a fantastic experience. It is so reassuring to know that your child is not only safe and well cared for but nurtured, stimulated and encouraged to develop and learn about the world around them. Our boys have often talked excitedly at home about Pre-School, and their 'Aunties'. A truly special place for which we are very thankful.

Jill Barker

Elm Road Pre-School has been a wonderful start to both our children's' schooling with a loving, caring environment and lovely staff always on hand to help.

The help and support my daughter has received with her visual impairment has been amazing and we truly can't thank the Aunties enough.


Elm Road Pre-School has been a fantastic place for our children to start their early years educational journey. The care and attention shown by the 'Aunties' makes them feel like family. Even during half term my little girl always wants to go to Pre-School! I would highly recommend them to any parent.
