Our Ethos

Here at Cold Ash Pre-school, we commit to ensuring each child is safe, secure and at the heart of everything we do.

Our goals are for every child to:

  • Enjoy pre-school
  • Make the best possible progress with us
  • Grow to love learning, making friends and taking part
  • Be ready for school upon leaving

Setting Outstanding Standards

We are very proud to report that Cold Ash Pre-school received a rating of “Outstanding” in its recent Ofsted inspection.

Cold Ash Pre-school is proud to hold the certification for the bronze stage of Empowering West Berkshire’s SQP quality assurance programme.


Why are we a great pre-school?

Apart from our fantastic garden area which allows our children numerous fun and engaging learning opportunities daily, our wonderful Pre-school Leader is a qualified teacher with Reception class teaching experience who is focused on educational standards. She is supported by a team of dedicated and hard-working staff who together:

  • Work with the children daily, in groups sorted according to age and ability
  • Write consistent, focused and efficient learning journeys
  • Track & monitor each child’s progress
  • Focus on school readiness for the older cohort
  • Arrange parent meetings to discuss their key-children’s progress and next steps
