Church Walk Pre-school Nursery

About Us

Church Walk Playgroup was established in (approximately) 1972 and changed its name to Church Walk Pre-school in April 1997.   We were registered as a Charity in September 1994 and relocated as Church Walk Pre-School Nursery in July 2000.  In August 2005 we became incorporated and our name was changed to Church Walk Pre-school Nursery Limited.  A committee of parents and volunteers manages the group.

We operate on a term time only basis and offer a Breakfast Club & After School Club for Nursery children and pupils attending Church Walk CofE Primary School, Ulverston.

Our Aim is:

  • To work within a framework which ensures equality for all children and families.


We offer your child:

  • A 1:4 adult to child ratio is maintained for children who are under three years of age and 1:8 for children over the age of 3.
  • Planned activities to follow the guidelines in the Early Years Foundation Stage. (EYFS)
  • Each child is allocated a Key Person who is responsible for recording your child’s development in the EYFS.  The Key Person liaises with parents/carers’ to establish a good rapport.
  • Opportunities for you as parents/carers’ to discuss your child’s development and any concerns at a pre-arranged time with your child’s Key Person. More formal Parental Interviews are arranged each term.
