WHO ARE WE?
Holt Pre-school is a community pre-school which was originally opened in 1967 and has successfully operated in the village for 50 years.
Holt Pre-school offers term-time childcare for 20 children and provides a safe and supportive learning environment for children in the community from the age of 2½ yrs until they start school.
Our vision for future development is to continue to offer a happy, safe, warm and stimulating environment which is open and inclusive to all children within the community and which supports children’s individual needs and allows freedom of choice and growth.
Holt Pre-school is located within the grounds of Holt V.C Primary School in north-west Wiltshire close to Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon and Melksham. Holt has a population of 1,500 and the majority (70%) of children who attend pre-school come from the local community. A small number of children also come from the neighbouring villages which include Hilperton and Staverton.
Holt Pre-school was awarded The Bristol Standard in September 2016 in recognition of the quality and effectiveness of the provision.
We regularly visit The Courts National Trust gardens as part of the Forest Schools programme.
We have a lovely outdoor area with a new 'Hide and Seek Lodge' and a mud kitchen. We are also very lucky to be able to make use of Holt V.C Primary School's spacious grounds and play equipment.
