Welcome to Whickham Parochial Pre School

We aim to offer a flexible, caring, rich and personalised learning experience, enhancing the development of children in our care.

The environment at pre-school is inclusive, stimulating and challenging, where enjoyment and fun are linked with discovery and learning. Children will learn through their own initiated play ventures, as well as adult led activity. We constantly reflect upon our practice and strive to improve the quality and consistency we offer.


Our last inspection was 9 June 2023 where we were given the rating of ‘OUTSTANDING’ using the new inspection framework.

Our Ofsted URN is :2634328
