Mortimer Hall Pre-School

Mortimer Hall Pre-School provides high quality care and education for children below statutory school age. We place a strong emphasis on providing a wealth of interesting activities and offer large indoor and outdoor spaces for children to further their learning.  We work in partnership with parents and the local primary school to help us produce good outcomes for children.

We operate a key person system and place high importance on building the relationship between each child and their key person We have been praised by Ofsted for the “very warm attachments between children and staff”.

We add to the life and well-being of the local community and offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

We currently have spaces for an immediate start. If you would like to find out more or would like to arrange a visit then please either email us at or you can call us on 01865-604208 or on 07818-236348.

We now have our own dedicated room in addition to the main hall, garden and outside play area. Please do take a look at our new preschool room here.
