Cullingworth Pre-School is situated in the heart of Cullingworth village, it began as a playgroup in 1971 and is a member of the Pre-School learning Alliance. We are registered with Ofsted for 30 places, and we are a registered charity. We aim to make welcome all children and their families from the local and wider communities.
Our staff retention is exceptional, some staff members have been working at the Pre-School for almost 20 years. This is a big benefit to your children, they get continuity throughout their time with us and a great deal of experience. Our staff continue to train as part of their job role and are encouraged to develop new skills to help educate your children through their play.
We have a small team of parents that form the Pre-School Management Commitee. These parents also help with our fundraising every year. Please ask us at Pre-School for more information about our Committee and our fundraising team. We would love you to help.
