Our Ethos

We have been successfully educating children at our pre-school in Ilkley for nearly fifty years.

By coming to pre-school, your child will gain confidence outside the home, learn to interact with others and become more comfortable with the daily routines of school. We have been providing pre-school education for nearly fifty years and act as a feeder for a number of local schools in the area , including All Saints, Sacred Heart and Ashlands Primary Schools.


Our pre-school is run by a trustees, comprising parents and staff, to ensure that all children have a caring, safe and happy pre-school experience. During our last Ofsted inspection it was noted that the “children are very happy and secure in a highly inclusive and welcoming environment where expectations are high” and that the children “feel…very safe and secure”. Obviously the safety, happiness and well being of our children are of the highest priority for the playgroup and this was acknowledged by Ofsted.copy2
