Andrea of Potley Hill Preschool I’m Andrea and I’ve been the manager at Potley Hill Preschool since September 18.   I have introduced many changes this year and we are all very excited to be bringing our children the Curiosity Approach using In the Moment Planning, two of the leading initiatives in childcare today inspired by Montessori, Steiner, Reggio Emilia and Te Whāriki philosophies.  I am NNEB trained and have a degree in Early Years Education and together with my team we work hard to bring the very best to the children in our care. We are extremely proud of our wonderful staff whose friendly, caring manner encourages the children to thrive. A happy child will learn, and that is the ethos of Potley Hill Preschool. There is always lots of laughter as the children play, using their imaginations and learning how to ‘do and think’ for themselves. We do have structure and rules and that is a very important part of the children’s learning. In fact, many people have commented on how well behaved our children are – and we’re proud of that too.

We are so pleased to have been recognised with an ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted – It is testament to the dedication of our brilliant staff.

So we’re sure you and your child will enjoy your journey with us.

Our Setting

We are extremely proud of our setting! Here is a selection of images to give you a feel for both inside the building and the outside features. You are, of course, very welcome to come and see for yourself…



Every so often we have an OFSTED inspection, which enables us to receive government funding for our 2, 3 and 4 year olds. We are very proud of our Pre-School achievements. Justifiably so – according to OFSTED:

“Children make outstanding progress in relation to their developmental starting points, which successfully prepares them for their future and starting school.”

“Children are exceptionally motivated, confident and independent in their play because staff provide them with a wealth of exciting indoor and outdoor resources and activities.”

“Staff work very effectively in partnership with parents to provide them with resources and ideas to continue children’s learning and development at home.”

“Staff provide children with an excellent role model due to their calm interaction and communication with children.”

“Staff focus strongly on helping children learn to be polite, listen to each other and take turns. Consequently, children are extremely well behaved.”
