About Us

Welcome to Kirtlington Preschool


At Kirtlington Preschool we think big and walk tall! 

We aim to nurture children's self esteem,confidence and independence, encouraging their natural curiosity and desire to learn. We enable them to become caring, respectful members of their community with a positive attitude to learning. 

We are a well-established provision rated Good by Ofsted in May 2018. We have been based on Kirtlington School premises since 2004 where we have a large, well-equipped classroom with free flow access to a secure outdoor play area.

We are passionate in upholding the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework:

  • every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured

  • children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships

  • children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers

  • children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.


Our aim is to create a stimulating and supportive environment that allows children to learn through play and to develop key literacy and numeracy skills. We have a strong focus on PSED (Personal, Social and Emotional Development) – enabling children to become independent learners who are ready for school.

“Staff provide sensitive support to help children develop a strong bond with them. Children settle quickly and make friends. They are happy confident and eager to learn”

We have a good relationship with Kirtlington School, many of our children going on to join Reception with the benefit of a smooth and familiar transition. Visit the school website here:
