Why Marlow Bottom Pre-school? 

Fantastic staff

Our experienced, hard-working staff all have early years or teaching qualifications and are dedicated to providing a happy, safe and positive environment in which your child can learn and develop.

High ratios

With an unusually high staff-to-child ratio of 1:5 for over threes, your child benefits from more one-to-one time with our staff, who can focus on your child’s individual needs.

Space to play

We provide a wide variety of activities in our light and spacious hall and we are proud of our fantastic outdoor space. We even have a covered area to allow outdoor play when the weather is not so good.

Forest School

Our trained Forest School staff offer children hands-on learning experiences with nature in the woodland behind our pre-school.


We strive to be as flexible as we can when it comes to the hours we offer to funded children. For example, your funded hours could go towards 5 morning sessions per week, or towards full days (lunchtime included).

Successful transition

We work closely with Burford School and in particular with the Reception teachers. We want to ensure that all our children leave us ready to start school with confidence, skills, and the ability to handle the change of environment, structures and processes that this big step entails.


Please contact us for more information or to arrange a visit. Our staff will be more than happy to show you around!
