Learning through play

Welcome everyone to our website

We aim to add to the life of the local community and provide high quality edu-care in line with the

Early Years Foundation Stage


Little Oak Pre-school operates from our own Portacabin situated at 50A Holford Road, Witney.

We cater for children aged 2 - 4 years old and we are an inclusive pre-school. We operate 38 weeks of the year and our term time only. We have no defined catchment area and welcome all children and families.

At Little Oak Pre-school we focus on the importance of learning through play to enable children to progress confidently in all development areas enabling them to form meaningful relationships, become active learners and problem solvers.

Our team of Early Years practitioners are committed to the keyperson system working closely with you and your child providing a warm, caring relationships that promotes security and confidence for children to try new things.

Staff support children's language skills well, including for those children who are learning English as an additional language.

For example, they learn the basic names and written words in the child's home language for the fruit served at snack, and use Makaton to support basic communication.

Parents speak very highly of the staff team. They comment that their children love to attend the setting and the support they receive is excellent, especially when they need extra help, such as with speech or settling in.

 Children are inquisitive and motivated to learn.
