Welcome to our Pre-School

We wish you and your children a warm welcome to Pre-School. We are delighted to have re opened in September 2020. We currently accept children at two points in the year. In September (for children who will be 3 years old between September and February) and January (for children who will be 3 years old between the following March and August). Further information is below.

Please note currently we are unable to offer Pre-School visits, but please do phone for information regarding our daily routine and how we operate. However, it may be necessary to arrange for a member of the team to call you back - thank you for your understanding.

Sending our best wishes to you and your families at this time.

Kind Regards,

Sally Benton and Stephen Cummins

Welcome

Welcome to St. Joseph's Pre-School Redhill, a small preschool at the heart of the Parish of the Nativity of the Lord. The site is looked after by parent volunteers, so please bear with us. If some information you need is missing, please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any help.

About us

St. Joseph's Pre-School is a Catholic pre-school which primarily takes children who live within the parish boundaries of The Parish of the Nativity of the Lord, Redhill.

In 2020 we were awarded OUTSTANDING by OFSTED.

Children are taught a belief in God, with worship, prayer and example on a daily basis. We also explore other cultures and beliefs as part of our curriculum. We learn to look after ourselves, each other and our Pre-School.

During their first year with us (as Caterpillars) children normally start with two afternoon sessions increasing to three when available. In their pre-school (Butterflies) year we offer up to a maximum of four morning sessions (We currently operate 3 hour morning sessions and 2 ½ hour afternoon sessions).
