  • Who we are

    A stimulating environment set within the picturesque village of Stratford-upon-Avon

    A bright and modern Pre-school, with access to lots of outdoor space.

    Gingham Pre-school is set within the grounds of Holy Trinity C of E Primary school. Our proximity to the school gives children the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their surroundings, making the transition to school seamless.

    Inside the Pre-school, there are three large rooms, each focusing on different areas of learning. The children are given the opportunity to move between the rooms throughout the day and to engage in a variety of activities.

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself..

    Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Contact us for more information


    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.


Dedicated to providing quality care for your little one.

"Our dedicated, experienced team support all children to progress and develop, ready for a smooth school transition. Working in partnership with parents and following children’s interests to ensure learning is fun, enables children to thrive in a variety of learning environments, acquiring lifelong skills."
