North Nibley Pre-school was set-up over 45 years
ago, in 1974, and continues to provide a well-
established, welcoming and nurturing early years
learning environment which caters for children from 2 years old. We are based in the beautiful village of North Nibley in the village hall.
We maintain close relations with North Nibley Church of England School, including regular sessions and joint activities conducted at the school, with the majority of our children entering their Reception Year. As an early years provider, we are registered and inspected by OFSTED.
We receive the Nursery Education Grant from the local authority for 3 and 4 year olds and are also registered to accept 2 year old funding where applicable. We are a member of the Gloucestershire Playgroup and Toddler Association (PATA). We are also now a 30 free hours childcare provider for those who are eligible.
Children from all areas are welcome to join us.
We have excellent, highly-qualified and caring staff. The Pre School is based in the spacious village hall in the heart of North Nibley village. There is a fantastic space both indoors and outside for the children to play in and have some fun. A selection of free-choice activities is available at all times, as well as group circle time for songs, stories and discussion.
Our opening times are:
Monday 9.00am - 1pm
Tuesday 9.00am to 3.30pm
Wednesday 9.00am to 3.30pm
Thursday 9.00am to 3.30pm
Friday 9.00am to 3.30pm
Why choose us? Well we are a family friendly community based setting who offer child centred care, working with you and giving you support with your child/children. We are flexible and offer hours to suit your needs (dependent on availability), including offering 30 hours a week to those who are eligible. Our costs are straight forward and transparent - no hidden extras. We have good outdoor access and in the warmer weather have picnics/walks to the Tyndale Monument.
But don’t just take our word for it, come and meet us for yourself!
