About Us

We are pleased to welcome you to Stanwix Community Pre-School

We hope you find this website useful and helps you get to know us and how we work.

Stanwix Community Pre-School, a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance aims to enhance the development and education of the children. Primarily under statutory school age by offering rich, first-hand experiences.

We have a dedicated team of staff whose primary aim is the happiness, education and welfare of the children. Stanwix Community Pre-School takes care to ensure that everybody is treated as an individual with equal rights regardless of race, religion, gender or ability; individuality is promoted and valued. We offer a caring and friendly atmosphere in which to prepare your child for the early school years.

We offer a wide range of activities to develop new skills at your child’s own pace. We are a registered charity which is run by a management committee made up of parents whose children attend the Pre-school.

We welcome children from all over Carlisle and the surrounding areas. We do not have a specific catchment area. We currently have a waiting list for September 2022 and 2023. Please contact us or you can download, complete and return the registration form to us, if you wish to add your child's name to our list.
