"Staff provide very high-quality teaching and they ensure each child receives the support they need to reach their full potential". Ofsted May 2019
Little Fishes is a church managed pre-school based in the
St. Peters Centre in Ash. The Pre-school opened in September 2000 and has been rated as "Outstanding" by Ofsted. The pre-school offers 32 places Monday to Friday, term time only. There are five members of staff each day plus special needs assistants and student placements. The pre-school is all on one level, including the garden and can accommodate the needs of all children. We operate a free flow system between inside and outside so that children can achieve their learning outcomes in the environment that best suits them. There is also a wonderful sensory garden designed by the children based on the story "We're going on a bear hunt". It includes lots of plants to touch and smell, growing of fruit and vegetables, climbing challenges, a willow den and outdoor classroom.
We are a happy, caring pre-school, dedicated to providing good pre-school education to the under 5s. We pride ourselves on building warm, caring and respectful relationships with the children and families within our setting and welcome applications from all families regardless of faith, race or gender.
"Children benefit from excellent opportunities to spend time in the exceptional outside space and develop strong physical skills and belief in their own abilities." Ofsted May 2019
