Highworth Pre-School was set up in 1967 by a group of parents supported by a local teacher. After meeting at various venues around the town, the group obtained its own building in 1972 to meet the demands of the Highworth community and surrounding areas. We finally moved to our present site in August 2009.
Highworth Pre-School is situated in a purpose built building attached to the Ladybird Centre in Highworth. In September 2015, Highworth Pre-School created another playroom dedicated to 2 year olds giving us 3 dedicated playrooms and a large fully enclosed garden consisting of soft and hard play, it provides ample space for indoor and outdoor play.
Highworth Pre-School is run by a voluntary Management Committee of parents who share the responsibilities of running a busy and lively organisation. As a parent selected committee we abide by the Pre-School Learning Alliance Constitution of 2011.
We are a registered charity (No 308250). With the exception of 2 year old and 3-4 year old nursery grant funding we rely entirely on fees paid by parents and regular fundraising events to cover all running costs.
