   Welcome to Little Owls Preschool                




Our preschool is a not for profit charitable company, run by a voluntary committee. We are located in a quiet rural village to the north of Colchester. We have our own purpose built building with enclosed outdoor area on the King George Playing Field, Boxted, Colchester. CO4 5RE


We have seven experienced preschool practitioners, including a qualified teacher and four other members of staff qualified in childcare to Level 3. In addition, our office manager deals with all the administration. 


We are committed to providing a stimulating learning environment, but first and foremost one in which children feel happy, safe, valued and cared for. We treat each child as an individual and provide varied and balanced opportunities for all children to learn through play.

We are registered with Ofsted to care for children from two to five years of age, and accept government funded children.


As an Ofsted registered provider, we follow the welfare and the learning and development requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. We have been judged to provide good quality provision and graded outstanding in three of the five Every Child Matters outcomes for children.

Children very much enjoy their time at the setting, and respond enthusiastically to the learning opportunities, activities and resources available to them.' (Ofsted report 12/05/2010)
