Welcome to The Hollies Website

The Hollies Pre-school was inspected by Ofsted in March 2015 and they judged us as being OUTSTANDING - more details below.


Our aim at the Hollies Pre-School in Poynton, Cheshire is to provide a safe and happy environment where children can grow and learn under the guidance and supervision of our dedicated and caring staff.

We hope to fulfil their physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs, whilst showing them kindness, consistent discipline and encouragement in a happy and informal setting.

We also encourage children to learn about other cultures through our special links with St. James Primary School in Uganda - more details here.

Welcome 'Policy'

At The Hollies we welcome new parents to feel free to come and look round The Hollies at any time. We need to confirm a day and time of day (morning or afternoon, it does not need to be time specific) with new parents before they visit and have a contact phone number for them.

If you would like to come and have a look round please email: admin@theholliespreschool.co.uk or ring 01625 850176 and speak to Rachel or a Supervisor.
