Tintwistle Pre-school provides pre-school education in a caring environment for children of Tintwistle and the local community. We are based in a newly built Foundation Unit which we share with the reception class of the school and we accept children from 2-5 yrs. We are an Ofsted registered organisation, registered for 23 children and have 3 members of staff. Pre-school is open from 9am-12pm Mondays to Fridays, and offer extra lunchtime sessions from 12-1pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We aim to provide a positive learning environment through the medium of play in a close-knit and caring group. We have both funded and non-funded places. Funded places usually apply to children aged 3-5, and funding begins from the term after a child's 3rd birthday. Non-funded sessions cost £7. Our dinner time sessions cost £2.50, and children bring their own packed lunch.
