Welcome to Upper Hopton Pre-School

At Upper Hopton Pre-School we aim to provide a happy and exciting environment for children from 20 months until school age.


Funded places are available for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

Provision of the 30 hour funding has enabled families to increase their child’s Preschool hours for 3/4 year olds from 15 to 28 hours in our setting. Some families choose to have some additional hours, others the full 28 hours.


All staff are qualified to a minimum of NVQ level 3 and have a current Paediatric First Aid certificate.


We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum providing opportunities for children to learn through play, to achieve their potential and be "School Ready".


"Free-flow" play is provided at each session, enabling children to choose activities they wish to be involved in, thus developing their confidence and self-esteem. Play extends to the fully enclosed, shaded outdoor area where a variety of learning experiences are provided and children can observe growth, decay and changes over time in the surrounding wildlife garden that they have contributed to.

We meet in the Croft House Community Centre at the heart of the rural 'Yorkshire in Bloom' Gold Award winning village. The children learn to be good citizens and valuable members the community by taking part in horticultural activities with members of Hopton in Bloom.

We welcome parents at all times and encourage them to stay until their child is settled.

There is easy access for children to be dropped off and there is a large car park.


We offer:

Childcare from 20 months to 4 years and there is no need for children to be potty trained.

We are open School Term Time:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 9.00am - 3.00pm

Friday 9.00am - 1.00pm


Your child may attend for 3 hour sessions, 12-3pm, four hour sessions 9-1pm or six hour sessions 9-3pm,


This half term the children are learning about ‘People who help us.’ Each week the children will be visited by someone who plays a part in helping the general public; a Postal Worker, Police Officer, Dentist, Doctor, Firefighter and Teacher and are informed how they help us.
