At Little Crickets Pre-School, we believe in providing quality care and education for children aged 18 months to 4 years old. We offer funded and non-funded child care following the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and its principles.


Our pre-school offers a range of activities and programs designed to promote early childhood development and prepare children for their academic journey, with a focus on creativity, social interaction, and learning through play. We invite you to enrol your child with us and give them the gift of a nurturing and educational environment.

  • How will I know what my child has been doing at Little Crickets?
    We use a secure online journal where we share photos, observations and assessments on your child during their time with us. We also hold regular parent meetings to discuss your child's progress and development.
  • Are the same staff based in each room so there is continuity?
    We have set staff in each room on a daily basis and when staff are on holiday or absent due to illness we have familiar supply staff who cover within pre-school so there remains continuity for each child.
  • Can my child visit Pre-School prior to starting?
    To ensure a smooth transition into pre-school we recommend some settling-in visits for all children to enable them to adapt to their new surroundings and to meet staff and children in the room. We also offer a home visit to help support the child to become more familiar with their key person.
  • How many children are in each room and what are the staff ratios?
    In our Mini Explorers room (18mths-24mths) we have up to 6 children with staff ratios 1:3 In our Little Explorers room (2yrs-3yrs) we have up to 14 children with staff ratios of 1:4 In our Little Detectives room (3yrs-4yrs) we have 20 children with staff ratios of 1:8
  • Do you accept childcare vouchers?
    We are registered with most childcare voucher companies for parents who receive childcare vouchers through work and this amount will come off your monthly invoice.
