Our preschool
Little Owls Preschool (Boxted) is a charitable company, registered with the Charity Commission, and is run by a voluntary Board of Trustees made up mostly of parents. We encourage parental involvement, and welcome parents who wish to take an active part in the running of the preschool, either by becoming a trustee or by helping at sessions. The Board of Trustees has overall responsibility for the management of the preschool, whilst the manager and team of staff manage the day to day running of the setting.  
We have an experienced team of qualified staff, most of whom are trained to Level 3 or above. All staff receive regular training in safeguarding children and paediatric first aid and attend professional development courses to improve and update their knowledge. Our manager is a qualified teacher. In addition we have an office manager who deals with all administration.

Our building is purpose built for the needs of young children. We have an enclosed garden for all-weather, all-year use, where the children can explore and investigate the natural environment, with activities to promote all areas of learning available both indoors and outdoors.
We can take up to 33 children between the ages of 2 and 5 years per session. Children can be put on our waiting list at any time. Children usually, but not always, start between the ages of 2 and 2½.
Once we have your child's details on our waiting list, you will be contacted during the term prior to admission to arrange a visit and to discuss which sessions you would like reserved. Once you have reserved sessions, you will be invited to a taster session, when you will meet your key person. We welcome visits from prospective families at any time.
Our prospectus is available here, or hard copies are available on request.
If you would like to put your child on our waiting list, would like to visit prior to this or would like to request a prospectus, please contact us by any of the methods on the Contact Us page.
