About Little John’s Preschool

Who We Are

Little John’s Preschool a not-for-profit educational charity overseen by a Committee (Board of Trustees) made up of parents, staff, and volunteers. Parents/carers of children attending Little John’s automatically become Members of the Preschool.

Our Annual General Meeting is open to all Members. If you are interested in volunteering for the Committee or would like more information, please get in touch.

Little John’s Preschool Staff

Our staff are a close-knit team of Early Years practitioners. As well as the formal qualifications and experience listed, the majority of staff are parents themselves. We maintain the ratio of adults to children in our setting demanded by the EYFS Welfare Requirements. We also have volunteer helpers and trainee practitioners, wherever possible, to enhance these ratios.

All Little John’s Preschool staff and volunteers are fully DBS-checked and undergo regular mandatory training in safeguarding, food hygiene, and paediatric first aid. As well as gaining qualifications in Early Years care and education, staff take part in ongoing training to help them stay up to date with best practice.
