About the Preschool

The SRUF Preschool is open to children from age 3 years. In September 2015 we were awarded 'OUTSTANDING' in all areas by Ofsted and we provide quality Foundation Stage education. Committed staff members, employed by the committee, run the Preschool sessions and provide the best foundation for your child's preschool development.

We are a Forest School setting and regularly go to Arnos Vale Cemetery, where we have a dedicated Forest School area and Community space.

The Preschool is a stimulating and friendly environment which benefits substantially from parental involvement.

We have been awarded the Bristol Standard, this is a self-evaluation framework which enables us to continually reflect on our practice and improve the quality and effectiveness of our provision. See attachment below for more details.

Current Preschool fees are £5.25. In most cases, the governments FEEE (Free Early Education Entitlement), 15 hours per week (universal entitlement) and up to 30 hours per week (extended entitlement) for working families, are available. The Administrator makes an application on the parent’s/carer’s behalf. However, you should note that the FEEE can only be claimed and used in the term following the term in which your child turns three. For more information on the Government's FEEE scheme click here.
