Welcome to Our Lady's Pre-School -




Our Lady's Pre-School opened in September 2011 in the beautiful church hall of Our Lady of the Cray's Catholic Church.


We offer a very high standard of quality care, for children from the age of 2-5 years, in a safe and stimulating environment: for the inclusion of all children and to cater for their unique and individual needs. Our aim is to make learning fun within a vibrant, happy and welcoming environment, whilst teaching children traditional values and considerations i.e. supporting their moral and spiritual wellbeing in conjunction with their physical, social, emotional and intellectual





**Please see the new updates on the funding page regarding the 2 year old funding**




Ofsted  2018

On the 13th December we had our Ofsted inspection and were graded "a very strong good" only 2 small points of improvement to achieve outstanding which we are very happy about!.





Please ensure that your child’s lunch does not contain any nuts or nut products, we’ve recently had peanut butter sandwiches and nuts in lunches. We have people with allergies to nuts. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please provide healthy packed lunches or cooked food which does not include any sweets, chocolate, popcorn, crisps or fizzy drinks.


If bringing in any meat to re heat please make sure it has no bones.




Parents that pay -


Non funding children - Parents are still required to pay even if your child does not attend their booked sessions for what ever reason , either illness or holiday as this reserves their place.





When picking up your child please ensure you are not on your phones or wearing headphones.


This is for the safety of your children. If you are on your phone you are not giving your child your full concentration and we have had a few parents that were on their phones and their child has run off towards the road which is a high safety risk.


Taking pictures  -


Parents are also reminded not to take any pictures of the children within the pre-school or playground.






All Parents we must remind you that it is an Ofsted requirement that children have access to outside play in ALL SEASONS. As long as its not icy or slippery we will always be going outside, which is why we ask you to ensure your children are well wrapped up if its cold.
If very cold we will only go out for up to 20 minutes.
If hot we ensure they have plenty of shade, they have sun cream on with sun hats.


"Outdoor learning is fun – The outdoor environment should be enthralling and stimulating, whilst also being thought-provoking. All seasons – Schools and pre-schools should extend all-year-round opportunities for learning outdoors and finding adventure".


"The EYFS recognises the importance of outdoor learning and states that young children must have access to outdoor spaces. Outdoor learning plays a crucial role in helping children make sense of the world and grasp the basic concepts of science"


We must stress we can not keep a child in with 2 members of staff due to ratios. If your child is not well enough to go outside then please keep them at home.


Thank you.





Parents please do not forget your children's SUN HAT and they must have SUMCREAM on BEFORE they attend pre-school (have cream in bag if they attend all day for a top up) otherwise they will not be allowed to play outside, which becomes very difficult for us due to staff ratios etc.


ALL children's skin will burn no matter the tone so please apply it.


Please also ensure your children's hair styles are easy for us to put on their hats as we dont want them to miss out.


Our Policy has always been no hat or cream no play.

If you have any further concerns please speak to managment.


Thank you.
