Caversham Heights Pre-School

Caversham Heights Preschool has been providing learning through play for local pre-school children since 1963.  During this time many changes have been made to keep up to date with the changing face of pre-schools.  We aim to provide high quality pre-school education in a safe and happy environment.  We encourage children's development in line with the Government's Early Years Foundation Stage.  Children may be offered a place from the age of 2.5 years should places be available, however children are normally offered a place in the September following their 3rd birthday.  We are committeed to a policy of Equal Opportunities for all children. 

The preschool is a registered provider of Pre-school Education by OFSTED.  The group was last inspected for OFSTED in June 2019 and was found to be Good in all areas.

We are registered with Reading Borough Council as a provider of funded education.  We are also a member of the EYA (Early Years Alliance).

Caversham Heights Pre-School has published their Local Offer providing information on Special Educational Needs & Disabilities.

 Age range 2.5 to 5 years.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
