What we offer

Woodmancote Preschool has been providing childcare and teaching local children in Woodmancote, Bishops Cleeve and surrounding area for over 50 years and we are very proud to have been at the heart of this community for so long! We now look after the children and even grandchildren of those original children, which we feel says a lot about the quality of the care and education we provide. Children can attend Preschool from their 2nd birthday. We are based in Woodmancote New Village hall which is situated next to a large playing field with access to the play area. Come rain or shine, we make full use of our outdoor environment daily so wellies are a must!

We do our best to get outside with the children most days, whether it’s to play in the play area, see the horses or use our outdoor equipment on the patio. Have a look at our sessions page to find out more about how we run.

We also offer forest school to children attending our Tuesday sessions and Muddy Monday for children unable to attend Tuesdays.

Woodmancote Preschool is staffed by an enthusiastic and dedicated team of Early Years Teachers and Practitioners. The team consists of 2 Head Practitioners who share the role and one of whom is a qualified Early Years Teacher, Early Years Educators, a qualified Forest School Leader and Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). All of whom have had experience in bringing up their own children and all have Early Years qualifications.

Our children leave us to start school, we aim to give them the best start in their early education so they leave us not only ready to start their school journey but also to be independent, excited and motivated to learn more. Transition to school is a big step in any young child’s life and we support children and parents to help make this a positive experience for all.

We are a registered charity run by a volunteer committee of parents. Charity Number: 1059409

From November 2020 we are extending our opening times. We will be open from 8.15am until 3.30pm Monday to Friday for 41 weekm each year.

If you have any questions or require further information then please don’t hesitate to get in touch or pop in during one of our sessions when we shall be happy to see you.
