Holmes Chapel Community Preschool


Holmes Chapel Community Pre-School is centrally located within the grounds of Holmes Chapel Primary School, Middlewich Road. We have been established for over 40 years and offer sessional day care for children from 2 to school age. We work in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017) requirements, are members of the Early Years Alliance (previously Pre-school Learning Alliance) and are a registered charity (charity number 1017112) which is managed by a committee of volunteers. We are registered with Ofsted and at our last inspection in April 2017 the overall quality of our day care was judged to be good. Our daily routine consists of a mixture of child initiated time, adult guided time and free flow access indoors to outdoors. The outside area is securely fenced and covered in a soft play surface. Within the outdoor area, the children have access to a large undercover sand pit, mud kitchen and water tray. They are also encouraged to care for their environment and grow their own fruit and vegetables. The outdoor area can be accessed via a free flow door, by stairs or ramps, from the Pre-school building. Full Day Sessions are 9.00am - 3.00pm (including lunch club). Half day session times are 9 to 12, 9 to 1 (including lunch club) and 12 to 3 (including lunch club). If children are staying for the lunch club parents are asked to provide a packed lunch as we do not have catering facilities. A healthy snack is provided mid morning. Fresh water is available throughout the sessions. All staff are qualified to level 3 or above, or working towards this. All staff are Paediatric First Aid trained and also attend regular safeguarding training.
