About us

Orleton Pre-School Group is a registered charity (No. 1180030), run by a voluntary parent-run committee for the community of Orleton and the surrounding areas. It has been established for more than forty years, having moved to our present location alongside Orleton Primary School in 2009.

The Committee oversee the running of the group, representing the wishes of the families attending, ensuring that children’s well-being remains the most important aim.

The Pre-school premises comprise an entrance hall, where each child can choose a peg of their choice daily, selecting their own name-tag from a board, to help them learn to recognise their own names.

This leads on to a large and flexible main room, with washable flooring at one end, utilised for painting, craft and messy play, and more comfortable carpeting on the other, where role-play areas, a reading corner, and a large selection of child-accessible resources are located. Off this main room, are two offices, a small kitchen and the children’s toilets. There is a toilet with disabled access situated in the main entrance hall. There are ramps to the front and side of the building suitable for wheelchair access.

Outside, there is a covered area suitable for use in all weathers, leading onto a secure outside play area, with soft landing surface, complete with a selection of play apparatus, a mud kitchen, and raised planters where we grow our own plants, and vegetables, all looking out onto the school playing field and the beautiful countryside beyond
