Parents are welcome to make a preliminary visit to see Pre-School and Nursery, to view the setting in practice and to gain an understanding of what Tilehouse Street Pre-School and Nursery can provide for you and your child.

To help children settle into the Pre-School and Nursery routines, we require children to attend a minimum of 2 sessions a week and at least 2 different days. Of course, children can attend as many sessions as you wish, subject to availability.

Our Local Offer

As part of the Pre-School and Nursery’s policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any special needs or disabilities which a child may have. We therefore work to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and the Special Needs Code of Practice (2014). The Pre-School’s Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator is Mr Chris Roblett (
