About Butterflies Pre-School

A Place to Shine for children from 2 years old

With our progressive and holistic early childhood education philosophy, we understand that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and tools your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities.

When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave Butterflies Pre-School, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

We are so proud of achieving a Good Ofsted report click here to view (our last inspection was 24 February 2023). 

What Ofsted said...

Children and families are welcomed by happy, friendly and nurturing staff. They are excited to enter the setting, and they confidently separate from their parents with ease.


Children behave extremely well. This is due to the positive role models and high expectations staff have of every child. 


Staff place a high priority on promoting children's healthy lifestyles and diets. They believe in the ethos of 'healthy body, healthy mind'. Children learn about the benefits of physical activity and talk about the different 'rainbow food' in their lunch box.


Parents speak highly of staff and value the care their children receive. Staff form positive partnerships with parents from the very beginning. This helps to ensure that children are happy and their needs are well met.


Staff maintain a safe environment for children. They complete thorough risk assessments to help ensure that the premises and trips off site are safe.
