Alderley Edge Pre-school



Alderley Edge Pre-School will be holding an open afternoon for all families who may be interested in joining our setting from September 2019. Our environment will be set up for children to explore and have the opportunity to experience a session at our Pre-School, the staff team will be on hand to deliver tours of the setting and answer any questions you may have! We look forward to meeting lots of new families and sharing our outstanding setting with you!

Fire Training

All staff have taken part in fire lighting and fire safety training, this was led by our forest school leaders from Broadleaf FS. We had a fantastic time during the session, we all had a turn at building, lighting and putting out a fire, we even got to toast some marshmallows! We discussed our risk assessment requirements and safety procedures. It was a fantastic effort by all, well done team! We can't wait to be doing more activities incorporating our new skills during our holiday club and also with our key groups during our woods group times. 


Our Ducks arrived on Tuesday 19th March and had hatched by the 21st... the children got to watch as two of the ducks actually hatched out of their eggs! This was such a fantastic experience!! We have loved having the ducks with us at Pre-School, we have let them splash in the water trays, run on the field and even play in our small world area! We learnt about the life cycle of a duck and also got to hold them feeling their webbed feet and fur! 

Christmas Fair - £460!!!

As a result of an extremely successful Christmas Fair we have been able to purchase some fantastic new outdoor furniture pieces! We are so pleased with our new resources!! We hope you agree... they really are fantastic!!!!

Our Shelter!!

                                                      We have raised a total of  £1052.75

I would like to thank all of you for your support and kind donations, we were also successful in the green token scheme winning £400! We are so pleased to share with you that thanks to KJB builders our shelter has now been built and ready for use! Photos are being added to tapestry for you all to see! The Pre School matched the funds raised in order to get our shelter up and running in time for the winter! The children have already been using our shelter during small group times and our forest school sessions have already benefited after a really cold 2 hour session made a lot warmer by having access to the shelter!
