‘From tiny acorns, mighty oak trees grow’

‘Outstanding in all areas’ Ofsted 2020


Welcome to Broughton Pre-School Nursery; we provide outstanding quality care and education for children from 2 years old to statutory school age.

We are located in a semi-rural location, which allows us to benefit from a large fenced outdoor area. Additionally, the outlying area of the playing fields can be and is utilised in many ways with nature walks, visits to the park, sports activities and many other outdoor activities. We are a ‘Lead practitioner setting for Lancashire’ and our main focus is on providing a safe, secure environment for Outdoor play and ‘Learning through play’.

We ensure all our children, regardless of their background, abilities or needs (see our local offer), feel included and valued. Inside our pre-school building, you will find that it is warm and welcoming with a display of the children’s creations and photographs. We have a wide range of activities available that will interest and motivate the children.

We view parents and carers as members of our setting too and value the positive relationships we work hard to build and maintain.

‘Broughton Pre-school is the ‘hidden gem’ of the A6! It’s hands-on, practical approach to learning makes every day a new adventure for young, curious minds – indoors and outdoors. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and safe, and the provision of after school care makes a complete solution for working parents.’

Parent 2008

Broughton Pre School were one of the first four settings in Lancashire to achieve the Lancashire Quality Award. This demonstrates our exceptionally high standard of provision, care and education.

We were pleased to be awarded the Learning Excellence Good Practice Award in January 2014 for our study ‘How the role of the practitioner can raise the level of achievement for boys’ in the early years’. The Learning Excellence Award is about sharing good practice between educational establishments.


We were Ofsted inspected in February 2020 and at the inspection we received an OUTSTANDING in all areas.
