Welcome to Overdale Tots Pre-School

We are situated in High View (off Bow Hill), in a light and airy self-contained unit with

a garden and covered outdoor play area.  


We have our own access off High View.


Overdale Tots consists of up to 40 children per session aged between 2 & 4+.  


We work towards building your child’s development using the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (Guidence‘.)  The main aim of this programme is to help children develop at their own pace, building on their interests in a safe, stimulating and happy environment.  


Their progress is continuously monitored through observation, evaluation and planning, including a tailor made individual learning plan.


To achieve this we maintain a ratio of 1 adult to every 8 children for 3 year olds and 1 adult to every 4 children aged 2 years, and provide various stimulating experiences through play and enjoyment.







We have a choice of session’s morning, afternoon or ‘all day’ or a mixture of all three!


We are open: Monday to Friday 8.00am to 6.00pm all year round, except bank holidays.


The government fund children a term after they are three for 15 hrs or 30hrs a week for 38 weeks term time only.


There is also two year old funding for 15 hours a week however not all two year olds are allocated this.


Please ask a member of staff for the form which specifies the requirements.

We provide a variety of activities every day, but this does not necessarily mean that your child will bring something home with them every time.  


Please remember that there are lots of things for them to do & they may have been busy playing with something else.


This does not mean that they have not been learning, children learn most things through play & this is what they are encouraged to do.


Snack Time

We have rolling snack midday through the session.


Each child is asked if they would like to have snack. They will sit at the ‘snack table’ with some friends during this time.


We operate a ‘healthy eating’ & will offer a variety of fruit, vegetables, bread, crackers etc.  


We welcome donations of snacks from parents; please look at our snack menu if you would like to donate any food.
