Holt Pre-school is a community pre-school which opened in 1967 and has successfully operated in the village for over 50 years. We have a consistent Ofsted rating of "Good".

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 2 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. We welcome children from the neighbouring villages which include Trowbridge, Melksham and Staverton.

We regularly visit The Courts National Trust gardens as part of the Forest Schools programme.

Holt Pre-school is part of the Bristol Standards Scheme which is a self evaluation framework that supports us in developing and improving the quality and effectiveness of our childcare provision.  We are regularly assessed to ensure continuous quality.  

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.
