Grove Hill Christian Preschool has been in operation for over 50 years.

We are a small, friendly group with a higher adult/child ratio than the government guidelines demand so as to provide plenty of one to one attention to each child. Building blocksWe are open to all families in the community and can accept both 3+ and 2 year old children with government funding.

We are Ofsted registered and inspected and received a ‘Good’ at our last inspection.

You can see the Ofsted report page here.


All our staff have a childcare qualification or are working towards a childcare qualification. We have First Aid training and are background checked for our suitability to work with children. We operate a keyperson system where each child has a designated staff member who gets to know them and plans for their progress; this helps children to settle and to work towards greater achievements.

Opening TimesPre-school (5)

We are open four mornings a week, during school term times, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9.10 am to 12.20 pm. Our popular Lunch Club for children of 3+ on Monday and Tuesday from 12.20 pm to 1.30 pm offers children the chance to learn simple food preparation and cooking skills and to become used to eating with their peers; valuable preparation for school mealtimes.


Grove Hill Christian Preschool offers a wide range of play activities both indoors and outside for the children’s enjoyment and to aid their development. We follow the Early Years Foundations Stage guidance (which is also used by school nurseries and reception classes) in planning for the children.
