Information about the setting

The Lenches Pre-School opened in 1963 and was registered at the current premises in 2008 on the Early Years Register and the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. It is situated in the village hall in the Church Lench area of Evesham, and is managed by their pre-school committee. The pre-school serves the local area and is accessible to all children.

It operates from two rooms and there is an enclosed area available for outdoor play. The pre-school employs eight members of childcare staff. Of these, six hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 3, one with Qualified Teacher Status and one is working towards Early Years Professional Status.

The pr...e-school opens Tuesday to Friday in school term-time with sessions available from 9am until 3pm. Children attend for a variety of sessions. There are currently 30 children attending who are in the early years age group.

The pre-school provides funded early education for two-, three- and four-year-old children. It supports a number of children who speak English as an additional language and children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: consider enhancing the excellent provision of opportunities for children to extend their experiences by, for example, having a 'holding bay' where their creations can be retained for children to continue to enjoy, develop, or refer to over a period of time.
