About our pre-school
St Mary's Pre-School is a friendly, long-established Pre-school in the heart of Marlow Bottom. We welcome children and families from all social, cultural and religious backgrounds. We first came into existence in 1967 as a playgroup and are now a fully constituted pre-school and registered charity, accredited by the Pre-School Learning Alliance.
Our pre-school is based in St Mary's Church Hall, on the corner of Marlow Bottom and Kingsley Road, very close to Burford Primary School. The hall provides a large light space in which we can set up different exciting activities for the children every day.
There are always quiet areas for stories and literacy alongside more active zones where we often get out our climbing frame and trampoline. Role play is encouraged with a range of play settings and arts and craft options are varied daily.
We are also lucky enough to have a lovely outdoor area, refurbished in 2012, which the children love playing in. Walks out in the village in small groups occur regularly, with visits to the woods, shops and postbox always proving popular.
