Our Philosophy

Mortimer Hall Pre-School is a community-based voluntary managed pre-school in Marston.

We provide high quality care and education in a safe, happy and diverse environment for children under statutory school age.

Our purpose-built hall is packed full of learning equipment, activities, educational toys and a lovely story corner. 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 encourage children to develop social skills and many excellent friendships are formed even at this very young age.

We work in partnership with parents and the local primary school to help us produce good outcomes for children.

Your child’s key person will maintain a record of his or her development and make decisions about how best to take them through the various stages of learning.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”. your key person will maintain a record of your child’s development and make decisions about how best to take them through the various stages of learning.

Healthy Eating
Mortimer Hall Pre-School encourages healthy eating by providing snacks throughout the morning session. We have lunch together and it is a lovely time to interact and enjoy a meal together.

Parents are regarded as members of our setting who have full participatory rights.

These include a right to be:

    • valued and respected
    • kept informed
    • consulted
    • involved and
    • included at all levels

*As a community based, voluntary managed pre-school, we also depend on the good will of parents and their involvement to keep going. Membership of the setting carries expectations on parents for their support and commitment.
