Welcome to Ladybird Pre-School

We are a long-established, vibrant and friendly pre-school based at the St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School site in the village of Chinnor, Oxfordshire. Our recent Ofsted inspection rated us as an Outstanding Provider (Report November 2018).

We offer unaccompanied sessions for children from two-and-a-half to five years old, five days a week. You will find details of our opening hours and session times in the “Sessions and Fees” section of this website.

For many parents, choosing a pre-school is the first major decision they will make towards their child’s education. And for the over threes, it’s often the first time that their child will spend any reasonable time away from home.

At Ladybirds, our experienced team understands the concerns and needs of parents and children. We go out of our way to get to know you and your child individually and settle them into pre-school life and prepare them for primary school. We will help and advise you on how they can grow and suggest things that you can do at home to help them develop.

We take pride in offering a fun, caring and stimulating environment, where children build their confidence, expand their social skills and increase their learning and communication.

We truly believe that we offer a family atmosphere; we are run by a parent-led committee and many more are involved in our events and fundraising. It’s common for our parents and children to make firm friends that last well into primary school and beyond.

We hope that our website gives you an idea of what we do. If you want any more proof of our excellent work, have a look at the parent testimonials on this site but more than anything, please come for a visit and see for yourself.
