who are considering a place there, for individual tours of the school.

You can book one at this meeting or email / ring school to arrange one.


We are very pleased to welcome Emma Bedford to the Pre-School as a member of our team. Emma has been working as a Nanny and, therefore, knows a lot of the children already.

There are also changes to our committee too. We are pleased to welcome Katherine Kettlewell, Lisa Hargreaves, Angela Puddle and Claire Moran and we sadly say goodbye to Tracey Goodwin who has served on the Pre-School committee for over 10 years, Rachael Machin, Erica Ashbrook and Sarah Jones

Goostrey Pre-School is a charity run organisation.Our Parent run Committee works hard to organise many fundraising events throughout the year so that we can provide new equipment and resources for the children. We are looking for new parents to join our committee so that we can go on providing those essential items in the future. We meet once every half term in the evening. If you would like to know more or would like to get involved, please speak to any of the current committee members
