All About Us

Longthorpe Preschool has been established since July 1972 and is a registered charity.  The business is managed by a voluntary management committee made up of mainly parents or carers of the children attending the preschool.  
The preschool expanded in January 2013 and now consists of two preschool sites and a breakfast and afterschool club.
Our site at the Village Hall is for children from the age of 2 years and is a 'pack away' accommodation as we rent the main hall and garden from Longthorpe Village Hall in the center of Longthorpe.  It is open Tuesdays to Thursdays 09:00 - 15:00 term time only.

The Upper preschool opened January 2013 in new accommodation within Longthorpe Primary School and takes children for their final preschool year before starting primary school the following September.  Opening the new site has enabled us to expand our capacity and reduce our waiting list.  The Upper preschool is open Monday - Thursday 9:00 - 15:00 and Fridays 09:00 - 12.00 term time only.

Our Out of Hours Clubs - Breakfast and Afterschool uses the Upper school's room before and after the sessions and admits children of Longthorpe Primary School and the children of the Upper preschool.

Longthorpe Preschool's philosophy is to help and support each child to enjoy and achieve.  Staff are qualified and experienced to support each child's individual development through activities and experiences underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.  We are proud of our links with parents and the local community which has been maintained by good communication from all staff and the Management Committee.

The day to day operations of the preschool is managed by the preschool supervisor and supported by a deputy at each site in line with current legislation which is in accordance with the settings policies and procedures and the EYFS.  The supervisor's position is also supported by Early Years Advisors.
