Welcome to Chestnuts Pre-school

"Children are extremely happy and at ease both within the environment and with their carers, with whom they form very warm, close relationships."

 Click here to read the rest of our most recent OFSTED report (December 2015).

Chestnuts Pre-school is a registered charity, originally opened in 1984, and is managed by a committee whose members comprise of parents of children attending the group. We have our own self-contained premises in a residential area of Woosehill, adjacent to Hawthorns Primary School, with two large playrooms and a fully enclosed outside play area. We employ ten members of staff (eight of whom hold appropriate early years qualifications) who work with the children in a variety of sessions throughout the week.


Our sessions times are Monday to Friday 8.45am to 11:45am and 12:20pm to 3:20pm. With lunch club on Monday and Thursday we can offer 6 hour continual care (subject to availability and minimum age of 3). 

We currently have approximately 65 children on roll with us. We welcome children with additional needs and those who speak English as an additional language. 


If you are parent who would like to to help, either by joining the committee or by volunteering at some of our fundraising events, then please get in touch via our contact us page.
