Tredworth School Pre school and Nursery is part of Tredworth Infant and Nursery Academy.  Our fully equipped foundation Stage benefits from secure outside play areas and integrated toilets and cloakrooms

The School is set in the centre of Gloucester and serves a diverse social, cultural and religious community. The Nursery, Pre school and Reception work as a unit to ensure a smooth transition into Key Stage 1.

We are registered providers for the Education Grant.

Aims and Objectives

Our aims at Tredworth are to ensure the children who attend our setting are educated and cared for in a nurturing environment.  We have high but realistic expectations for each child based on individual development.  Our priority is personal, social and emotional development focusing on fostering independent, confident children with high self esteem.  Our children are immersed in a language rich environment with dedicated staff who provide clear and consistent boundaries.  Each child is treated as an individual and assigned a key person who monitors and assess their progress against developmental norms and identifies and plans for their next steps.  Children are encouraged to investigate and explore in a safe environment with adults who plan challenges to extend their learning and development.


Pre School and Nursery

 As part of our school we now offer funded places for two year olds. If you are eligible and would like a place please contact our school office on 01452 520411.

Both Pre school and Nursery provision follows the Foundation Stage Curriculum underpinned by the Early Years Outcomes which are progressive, building on the skills and knowledge that a child already has.  Our main focus is on Communication and Language; Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development and this is approached through the childrn's needs and interests.

We approach our learning  through structured play-based activities which encourage the child to learn at their own pace and ability. Play is a key way in which young children learn. It is enjoyable and challenging. we ensure that play is purposeful and carefully planned objectives can be worked towards in a variety of learning situations which have the characteristics of play. It is important to remember that young children do not learn passively. They learn best by doing and being actively involved in their learning.

Your child has already learnt a great deal by the time they join us. These early years are the most formative and together parents and staff play a crucial part in establishing appropriate attitudes and approaches to learning in the children.

We will ensure your child has a smooth transition into their Reception year from Pre school. This will include visits from their new teacher, play sessions in the Reception unit and a Foundation Stage team that communicate with each other, moderate achievement and support your child through transition.
