About Us

About Our Setting
  • Lavenham Pre-school delivers quality education to pre-school children aged 2,3 and 4 years from a purpose-designed setting.

    Lavenham Pre-school is a company in the form of a Charitable Incorporated Organisation registered on 1st July 2019. Previously it had operated as an unincorporated charity.

    The Governing Document of the Pre-school is its Constitution, a link to which is included within Constitution and Policies.

    The Pre-school is managed by an elected Board of Trustees with a broad range of skills and experience, which meets regularly. Parents are encouraged to become Trustees and to assist with our fundraising activities.

  • Lavenham Pre School, Suffolk,

  • The current Trustees are as follows:

    Roy Mawford – Chairman

    David Carse – Vice-Chairman

    Kelly Humphreys

    Jill Jones

    Sue Knight

    The Pre-school is subject to regular inspection by Ofsted. The first inspection in its current incorporated form and in our purpose-built setting was held on 1st October 2021, and resulted in a rating of GOOD.

    The Pre-school is self-funding from the Government Funding Grant for Early Years Education and from fees charged for non-funded sessions. We also raise money from various fundraising activities and donations received through participation as “Lavenham Pre-school” in the Easyfundraising scheme (https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/).

  • We use a written framework for our curriculum called the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

    You can find more information about the EYFS here:


    An updated EYFS has been introduced from 1st September 2021 – please see Recent News below.

    We offer taster sessions for you and your child to enable parents and staff to work together during each child’s settling process. Children will be assigned a key-person during this time. This is a member of staff who will work with both you and your child to ensure a smooth transition into our setting.

    To assist with this, we provide you with an ‘All about Me’ Booklet for you to complete providing us with details about your child’s development, likes and dislikes, etc.
