St Andrew’s Pre-school provides excellent facilities for children aged 18 months to 5 years and is registered with Ofsted.

We are open from 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

We provide a happy, healthy, safe, and secure environment where all children, parents, carers and supporting agents feel valued and respected at all times. At St. Andrew’s Pre-School we give your children the opportunity to explore, experience and ask questions within their learning environment.       

Our approach to education follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. To evaluate and inform the children’s curriculum, we keep abreast of current legislation and other Early Years practices based on evidence from educational research.               

Situated in Edgware, Middlesex our Pre-school welcomes families from diverse backgrounds and celebrates various cultures and festivals. We also offer families the 15-30 free funded hours* (conditions apply) to ensure equal opportunities. We keep in touch with local feeder schools who continue to recommend our service to new parents and carers.

*Eligible 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 years olds are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education per week for 38 weeks per year. Up to 30 hours per week is available for eligible children – please feel free to contact us or Barnet Council for more information on extended hours eligibility.

Our Pre-school. Our Family. Our Community.

Our Pre-school was founded over 50 years ago in St Andrew’s Church in Edgware to provide a space for children to meet, play and learn. This also allowed families the opportunity to meet other parents over tea/coffee or to take up part-time work or training. Throughout the years our doors have remained open to hundreds of children and their families from a beautifully diverse community.

We are situated in a quiet location with a well equipped outdoor space and a warm, stimulating indoor learning environment. Our team have many years‘ experience with up-to-date training and tremendous love for children. The main success and longevity of the Pre-school is owed to recommendations and word of mouth from our parents, carers and others in our local community.

Don't just take our word for it.
