Welcome To

Horfield Welly Pre-school

Horfield Welly Pre-school offers a safe, nurturing environment for children aged 2 -5 years, in which each individual child is recognised, valued and supported to achieve their potential through meaningful play experiences.

We have some spaces available for 3 & 4 years olds - Please contact us to register your interest. 

All our equipment and resources have been carefully chosen for their play and learning potential. Our free flowing space from indoors to outdoors ensures that those children who learn best through active movement can thrive too. (link to how children play page) 

If you’re looking for a lovely local setting for your child for September and beyond please get in touch, we would be delighted to help you with any questions you might have about joining the Welly family. 

We are guided by a well planned curriculum and have recently been awarded an ‘outstanding’ rating by Ofsted.

Due to Covid-19 we are currently unable to facilitate visits to the Pre-school. Please visit the Parents and Carers page to find out more about a typical session. 

Virtual Open Morning Monday 7th December 10.30am


We are now taking admissions for September 2021 for 2 to 4 year olds and would love to show new families around our space and let you see for yourselves how our children play and learn. Sadly we can't do this at the moment so we've arranged a virtual Open Event as the next best thing. It will take place on Monday 7th December at 10.30am. You'll get the chance to meet some of the Welly staff and see our setting in action. If you'd like to join us please email horfieldwellypreschool@gmail.com and we will send you a link to join the event virtually.


We also have a couple of spaces available right now for 3-4 year olds so please get in touch for further information. 

Here is our pre-school manager, Courtney, with a quick tour of the pre-school.
