Maytree Pre-School


Established for over 30 years, Maytree Pre-School is held at The Hive, Woodbury Community Playing Fields, Woodbury. We run five mornings (with optional lunch clubs) and five afternoons a week throughout school term time.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and welcome children from the term before their third birthday until school age.

Maytree gives children their first experience of school and as such, we aim to provide a secure and stimulating learning environment for the children offering them a wide variety of experiences and opportunities to develop their interests and understanding.

"All children are individuals who develop skills and abilities at their own pace. Our focus is in helping your child become a confident person who can develop his or her potential whilst having fun with children their own age"


Our latest Ofsted report (May 2018) rated us as 'Good' with an 'Outstanding' area in Personal development, behaviour and welfare.

"Staff are highly skilled and very sensitive in ensuring children form very secure emotional attachments. Children have excellent emotional well-being. Children develop great independence and their behaviour is exemplary."

"Staff pay close attention to each child's interests and abilities. They assess children's progress precisely and plan challenging experiences to support children's learning. Children make good progress from their individual starting points."

The full report is available here.

Please note that due to our recent move of premises, our OFSTED number has changed, however our reports can still be accessed through our previous OFSTED number at the above link.

Our Ofsted number is: 2565269


Despite the recent changes in covid guidelines/rules ( February 2022) , our policies remain the same- if your child tests positive for Covid then they need to remain off pre-school until 10 days have passed or until they have had two negative Lateral Flow tests.

Although we’re all aware of the main symptoms; high temperature, new or continuous cough, loss of taste/smell, other symptoms are headaches and stomach ache and when parents are reporting cases these are symptoms they have been describing.
