About Us

Who are we?

We are a friendly and welcoming preschool in Chiswell Green, just outside St Albans.  We have been open for 35 years and have a warm and caring staff team with many years of experience.  We have a beautiful garden - more of a field really!  The manager Sue and owner Lora believe passionately in providing an enriching learning experience for children which is based on play and exploration.  We take time to ensure that every child settles and we are dedicated to caring for children with additional needs.  Come and visit us to see our child care setting for yourself.

We were very pleased with our recent Ofsted inspection.  Here is a highlight from our report: "Children demonstrate that they feel very happy and confident in this welcoming preschool. They form warm and secure bonds with their key person and all members of staff. For instance, children welcome staff's sensitive interaction in their play and frequently give them a cuddle."

Our Preschool


Dedicated and specialised Staff

We have an incredible and experienced staff team who are all passionate about children learning through play.  They set up challenging and fun activities each day for the children and they love messy play!

We also bring in specialist staff to offer children extra experiences, such as phonics, sports and dance.


Early Years Foundation Stage

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as set out by the government.  Our team work hard to meet the needs of each child as an individual to help them progress in their social and emotional development, their physical development and with their communication and language.  They also find creative and stimulating ways of helping to develop literacy, mathematics, and creative skills and help the children to understand the world around them.


Our Mission

We want every child who attends Chiswell Preschool and Nursery to feel happy, secure and confident.  We believe that play-based learning in a nurturing environment provides the best transition possible between being at home and starting school.
