Ripponden Pre-School has been operating since 1970 as a local committee run Pre-School. Ripponden Pre-school aims to provide high quality care and education for children of pre-school age, offering parents and children a service that promotes equality and values diversity and works in partnership with the local community.
Ripponden Pre-School is situated in the Community Centre by St. Bartholomew’s Church, and operates 5 days per week Monday – Friday offering sessions between 9-15 and 3-15 pm.
Our OFSTED status is “OUTSTANDING” which means we are a pre-school which fully complies with the guidelines set in place and in fact operates above them! Click to read more about us and our policies.
Our committee-run pre-school aiming to provide childcare for those between 2-5 years old prior to their attending infant school at 4 years old. The maximum amount of children per session we can accommodate is 26 – which allows us to provide as close an experience as possible between carer and child as possible to ensure your child gains the most they can from pre-school.
Furthermore we are a ‘Two Year Old Offer’ registered setting, providing Two year old funded places to awarded families. Speak to Sharron for further details.
We aim to offer childcare in a relaxed yet professional setting where you can be sure you child is receiving the best available support to them, in an environment where they will be encouraged to grow and develop. The children now take part in French lessons with a French teacher visiting us each week.
Parents are actively encouraged to contribute as much as possible in order to achieve the best for their children.
