The pre-school was established in December 1967, and this academic year sees the 50th anniversary celebrations of the small, charity-run community pre-school.

The two-time Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ early years provider is hosting a number of exciting events throughout the year to celebrate the important milestone, as well as the support it has received over the last 50 years.

The Pre-School started life as a more informal childcare group in the old village hall. Over the next 20 years it became a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance and recruited a voluntary management committee. When the village hall was demolished in 1991, the Pre-School moved into High Ash Primary School, temporarily, while the larger Parish Hall was built.

Once comfortably in the new building, in 1994, the Pre-School was able to register with the Charities Commission.

A spokeswoman said: “Little Ashes has always striven tirelessly to provide a happy, friendly and safe educational environment for its children and, in both 2011 and 2015, the Pre-School was judged by Ofsted as an ‘Outstanding’ provider, which is something the whole committee, staff and parents are proud of.
