Marygate Pre-School Playgroup

Pre-School Playgroup in Clifton, York


Marygate Preschool was established fifty years ago and in that time has built up a good reputation within the local community and beyond. Our recent Ofsted inspection in January 2017 is rated as Outstanding. Our premises consists of a large hall, a smaller adjoining room which houses our lending library but is also used for story time, singing and small group focused activities and an outdoor enclosed courtyard play area. We are open term time only for eight sessions per week – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9am until 12pm, afternoons from 12pm until 3pm. We also run a lunch club following each morning session from 12pm until 1pm, where, for an additional charge, the children are able to stay and enjoy a packed lunch from home. We can also offer early starts from 8.30am and late finishes until 4.00pm for an additional charge. We provide a healthy snack every session.
We have five staff led by the manager who is an Early Years Teacher and the deputy manager who holds a Foundation Degree in Early Years. We provide a warm, caring and comfortable environment where children can learn, develop, have fun and make friends. Our wide range of resources and activities enable us to support the children to learn through play and meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are able to accept two, three and four year old funding and also accept childcare vouchers from employers.
