Places at Olney Pre-School 2024

Like last year, we have again had quite a lot of enquiries over the past few months for places at our pre-school and although we try to accommodate as many children as possible, we are now running close to capacity with our current children and those already on our waiting list for the rest of the school year. If you are interested in a place for September 2024 and beyond, please get in touch and we can add your child(ren) to our waiting list. We normally hold an Open Morning in late June and will post details when the date has been finalised.

Exciting news!

As some of you are now aware and as a result of the amazing support from the Town Clerk and Olney Town Council, we will be able to offer places for two year olds from September 2023. We will have the use of an additional room within the Olney Centre, with direct access to our current rooms, which will be run as a stand-alone two year old room. Sessions will be available each morning from 9.00am until 11.30am. These will be charged at £12.50 per session or will be free to any child in receipt of Time for Twos funding.

If you would like to add your child to our waiting list, either to start in September or later, please email us at [email protected] with your child’s name, date of birth, your home address and a contact phone number. Please note that priority will be given to those children living within Olney and the close surrounding villages. Session request forms will be sent out to those on our waiting list after the Easter holidays by email.

More work in the garden!

Our #bagsofhelp project is finished and we now have a plaque from@tesco to show their support. Our grant from the Tesco Bags of Help community fund has enabled us to extend the garden safety surface down the bike path, including road markings, a roundabout and parking bays for lots of imaginative play. As you can see it’s very popular!


Our new garden

Here are the pictures from our fundraising last year and the work that was done in the garden back in September. A big thank you needs to go to the Olney Co-op who raised a whopping £3729 through their Community Fund, Olney Town Council for their very generous donation of £3000, the MKC Ward Coucillors (£380) and the Olney Masonic Club (£250). This was s significant investment for our Pre-School and we are so grateful for all support we have received. Thank you everyone!

Bugs and Illness

bugs and illnesses

Please remember to let us know if your child is unwell and not able to attend pre-school. If they only have a cough or cold but are generally feeling OK, then they can attend pre-school. If your child has suffered from sickness or diarrhoea, please DO NOT return to pre-school until 48 hours after final bout. If your child has got headlice, they may attend once treatment has started. For information about any other illness exclusions that you are unsure about, please contact Pre-School.
