At Little Oaks we are all friends!


Welcome to Little Oaks Pre-School

Welcome to the Little Oaks website! We hope that you find it informative and enjoy reading about our latest news and achievements.

Little Oaks Pre-School welcomes children from 2 years and 6 months until they are ready to start school. We are located on the grounds of the Grove School in our own self contained building with secure outside play area.  Our small, dedicated team of staff follows the Early Years Foundation guidelines, ensuring the children enjoy learning through play in many exciting ways, in preparation for when they move up to primary school. Each member of the Little Oaks staff works closely with all the children as well as their own allocated children as a Key Teacher, they follow the children’s progress and development as they move through the pre-school. In line with the EYFS guidelines, Through Tapestry (an online learning journal) the Teachers make observations, informal assessments and keep record of the children’s work in a variety of ways, some of which the parents see immediately and some of which are collated into a book and a USB, which the children receive when they graduate from Little Oaks, however the parents can access it whenever they like.

Little Oaks is open during term time only, from Monday to Friday with full and half day sessions available.
