Our Aim

We aim to ensure that all children are offered equal opportunities to develop their full potential, endeavouring to help and encourage all children to develop a well-rounded sense of their own value and worth. We celebrate diversity, welcoming children of every race, creed, culture and ability; an approach that we believe enriches the life of the pre-school for children, staff and parents alike.
 
For most of our children, pre-school offers them the first opportunity to meet and socialise regularly with adults and other children outside of the family unit. We help them make the most of this opportunity, by providing a happy and secure environment in which they can gain valuable self-respect and self-confidence through various activities.

 

We fully appreciate the importance of these early years in a child’s longer-term development, and aim to provide warm and consistent care that is flexible and sensitive to their individual needs; allowing them to progress at their own natural pace in a stimulating environment. This, together with our practical understanding of the physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs of pre-schoolers, provides our children with an ideal springboard from which confident, secure and successful schooling can follow.

History

Our charity was established in 1987 by a group of local parents wanting an affordable Pre-School in the community. Our aim is to provide affordable childcare and education to the local community, offering a safe and happy environment for our children, with the emphasis on fun!

 

We are a registered charity and as such income from fees is used to pay rent, staff wages and insurance. We hold fund raising events to gain additional income for equipment that is used in Pre-School.

 

Redbourn Pre-School is run on a day-to-day basis by a team of caring, well-qualified Childcare Professionals and we are managed by a volunteer Committee of parents. We are registered to take a maximum of 20 children per session and always have above the minimum requirement of staff to children ratio.
