Thorley Pre-School is a group for children from approximately
2 years 3 months depending on spaces available and personal requirements. All children and families are welcome at the Pre-School regardless of race, religion or beliefs. The group is registered as an early years provider and we are registered for the Two Year Funding scheme.

Herts Quality Standards Award
The Pre-School was awarded Herts Quality Standards (an achievement of excellence) in 2012 and previously in 2003. We were also accredited by the PSLA in both 2003 and 2007.
We are required to report any concerns regarding safeguarding children to the local authority. The safeguarding policy is available in the policy folder outside of Pre-School and is also sent to parents when accepting their child's place.
If you wish to make a complaint, please speak to the Manager initially who will endeavour to deal with the situation. If this is not possible or the issue is not resolved please contact the Chairperson in writing through the Pre-School. We will ensure that the complaint is dealt with in 28 days.
Please be considerate to the children that are walking to and from Pre-School and do not drive into Vicerons Place (where Pre-School is located) - unless in specific circumstances and with prior agreement with Pre-School.
There is an underpass from Sainsbury's to Pre-School and also a traffic light controlled crossing.
The parking bays at the bottom of Vicerons Place are permit only and parking tickets have been issued by the Housing Management Company previously - Pre-School have no control over this.
Help us to help your child - name all coats, hats, mittens, bags and comforters
Please dress your child in clothes with simple fastenings that they can try to manage themselves. With your support we will support and encourage your child to gain independence.
During the summer, we ask that children are sent with sun cream already applied and socks in any open toes sandals.
