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 staff are all well qualified and highly experienced in all aspects of early years provision.  All of our team are dedicated and hard-working and 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
