Learning and Fun for Children Aged 2-4

At Westgate Preschool we provide a caring and welcoming environment for children to thrive

We are delighted to welcome you to our lovely Preschool setting, nestled among the ancient and beautiful streets of Warwick. We share our site with Westgate Primary School and Westgate Children’s Centre, and have close links with both organisations.

Westgate Preschool has been in existence for 26 years, beginning as an initiative by the manager, Ruth Ive, a very experienced Early Years practitioner, and growing over the years to offer high quality day care for 23 children. We take children from the age of 2 years up to school age and we offer a caring, professional and supportive community for all our families.

Our exceptional staff team are friendly and approachable, committed to the best possible outcomes for every child in our care. Strong partnerships with parents and carers underpin our practice and we greatly value working together to provide a happy, diverse community where every member is valued.

Our provision is the very best, with an engaging curriculum taking place in a bright and airy setting or outside in our wonderful outdoor space. Our links with the school enable us to access the school hall for physical activities and dance, which the children absolutely love. We also use the school playground for outdoor activities with cars, bicycles and other large outdoor play equipment.

If you are interested in what we have to offer, please get in touch. It will be our pleasure to show you around and to answer all your questions. We understand that no two children are the same and so we will work with you to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their educational journey.

Welcome, once more, to Westgate Preschool, let the magic begin! 🪄

All 3 of my boys have attended Westgate Preschool, I highly recommend this setting its a lovely small preschool that is very welcoming & friendly, there are lots of activities set out for the children each day & a great outside area to access. Each of my children have been very different & needed support in different ways. Westgate were able to offer this & meet SEN needs of 2 of the boys.

Very friendly ladies that will take great care of your little ones!

I have two daughters who spent time in Westgate Pre-school and they both remember that time as magical. The preschool is ideally equipped to welcome the children in a warm, friendly, yet professional setting where toddlers learn through play and have plenty of opportunities to develop emotionally, socially and intellectually.

The staff are caring, kind and always up-to-date with the Early Years Curriculum, and they do a wonderful job in preparing the children for their coming years in school. I couldn't recommend Westgate Pre-school enough for all the hard work they invest in the children, for the strong nurturing side and the happiness that children experience when attending it!
