Welcome to Ripponden Pre-School

Ripponden  Pre-School is situated in the Community Centre by St. Bartholomew’s Church, and operates 5 days per week Monday – Friday offering sessions between 9-15 and 3-15 pm.

Our OFSTED status is  “OUTSTANDING” which means we are a pre-school which fully complies with the guidelines set in place and in fact operates above them! Click to read more about us and our policies.

Our committee-run pre-school aiming to provide childcare for those between 2-5 years old prior to their attending infant school at 4 years old.  The maximum amount of children per session we can accommodate is 24 – which allows us to provide as close an experience as possible between carer and child as possible to ensure your child gains the most they can from pre-school.  

Furthermore  we are a 'Two Year Old Offer' registered setting, providing Two year old funded places to awarded families. Speak to Sharron for further details.

We aim to offer childcare in a relaxed yet professional setting where you can be sure you child is receiving the best available support to them, in an environment where they will be encouraged to grow and develop. The children now take part in French lessons with a French teacher visiting us each week.

Parents are actively encouraged to contribute as much as possible in order to achieve the best for their children. We fully encourage parents participating in ‘’Rota Duty’’ whenever they can to sit in on one of their children’s sessions to fully encompass what pre-school values and beliefs are about.

We welcome enquiries be it a request for further information, to plan a visit to the pre-school, or to register a place for your child. Feel free to telephone us. Alternatively complete our online form on the  contact us page.

“Dear Sharron,
I'd just like to thank you so much for looking after both my boys. You are a very lovely person and I've always felt so happy leaving my boys with you, which I know every mum or dad will feel the same. Ripponden pre school is the best place I have come across ever. You are a fantastic manager and my son truly loved you. Thank you again and we'll see you at summer school.
Alison Farrell”
