About St Margaret's Pre-School staff
All of our pre-school staff are qualified to a level 3 qualification in childcare, as well as first aid and food handling. All our staff have been on safeguarding courses with the Manager being the Designated Safeguarding Officer in the setting.
Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by our setting can help your child to continue to do this by providing them with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development.

The committee is vital to the smooth running of the nursery. THE nursery CANNOT OPERATE WITHOUT A COMMITTEE. We hold termly meetings and being on the committee gives all parents involved an insight into behind the scenes of Pre-School. We hold an annual general meeting in October when new committee members are elected
Chair - Martin Pyne
I am a parent of two children who both attended St Margaret's Pre-School some years ago. I love living in our close knit community of Olton and was delighted to be asked to join the committee to support the development and growth of St Margaret's Pre-School.
St Margaret's Pre-School is a charity dedicated to delivering the best care, education, and outcomes for the children of Olton, Lyndon, and surrounding areas; it is a privilege to be involved.
I look forward to welcoming you to our setting!
