Welcome to Tutbury Pre-School where our team of experienced staff offer a warm, secure environment for children aged from two years old to school age.

Tutbury Pre-School was established in 1973 and is currently attended by a total of 50 children, each attending for a variety of sessions. We understand that for many children, pre-school may be their first time in a setting without the reassurance of their parents. We ensure our staff to child ratios remain high to continue to provide a supportive environment for your child to feel safe in.

At Tutbury Pre-School, we provide a wide range of safe and stimulating activities for the children to experience, and with help encourage them to gain the independence and social skills to prepare for school.

The Pre-School operates from two indoor rooms and a secure outdoor play area. The indoor rooms are called the Tiny Tots room (children aged 2 -3 years old), and the Rising Stars room (children aged 3 – 4 years). This provides the flexibility to allow the children to either participate in joint activities or to be split into separate groups to allow for age specific activities. Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and is planned by qualified staff to ensure your child’s needs are met. 

We are able to provide a flexible range of sessions to fit in with your needs, subject to availability. We also accept many of the childcare voucher schemes.


After a year of hard work, supported by my family, staff, committee and the parents my certificate has finally arrived.

I am now a qualified Early years Teacher.

Its been a long journey but a have achieved my goal and can only be a positive for the Tutbury Preschool.
