Welcome to Burton Green Pre-school!

Burton Green Pre-school is an Early Years education setting for children aged two to four years. Located at Burton Green Primary School in Clifton, York, it is staffed by a dedicated and experienced team. We aim to deliver outstanding provision for our children in a safe, friendly, calm and beautiful environment.

Within our setting, the children have ample opportunities to learn and explore through play, developing a range of skills they will need later in life. We have a fantastic indoor and outdoor learning environment, all focused on the needs of younger children.

We also welcome and support children who speak English as an additional language. Children who attend our pre-school are very well-prepared for starting school. 

Visitors are always welcome. Do come and meet us and see our provision – we would love to show you around!

There is a pre-school intake in September, January and April, and children can often also start during a term if necessary.

We will work as flexibly as possible to meet your needs and hence children could attend whichever sessions are best for yourself.

Supporting your child

We believe in an inclusive practice. Our early years team and colleagues throughout the school are very experienced in supporting children and young people with disabilities or additional needs.

Starting at pre-school

Starting school, at any stage can be a big step both for your child and you as a parent. You and your child will be invited to come and join in a session alongside the children who already attend the setting. This is a great chance for you and your child to get to know the adults and other children in the setting. These are free of charge and allow parents and staff to work closely together to support the children.

Visit us

Please do come and visit the early years setting and meet the team. We would be delighted to show you around. To make an appointment, please contact us by Email or telephone 01904 806293.
