Little Rowans Pre-School, New Earswick


Little Rowans is based within New Earswick Primary School, in a bright and welcoming area. Our sessions run during term time.

Session times are as follows:

Monday to Friday, 8:45am to 11:45am and 12:45pm to 15:15pm

Our Pre-School offers flexible childcare, including:

  • a breakfast club, 8:15am to 8:45am, £2
  • lunch club, 11:45am to 12:30pm, £2
  • full days.

At just £4 per hour, with funding and concessions available, we provide some of the lowest-cost childcare in York, with generous discounts for siblings. Sessions can be booked per term in advance.

Little Rowans offers a happy, stimulating and safe learning environment with fully qualified staff. We have a wide range of activities and resources to promote the children’s development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. The setting was rated ‘GOOD’ in all areas by Ofsted in December 2015.

Parents are included in all aspects of our work, and the group is an ideal way to help children gain confidence and independence. Each child is recognised as an individual and empowered to learn and develop at their own pace. The group is fully inclusive and able to support children who are disabled and/or have special educational needs.

Little Rowans is inclusive of all two-year-olds. When your child turns three, they will be eligible to take up a place in New Earswick Primary School Nursery. Our links with the primary school help children to enjoy a smooth transition from our Pre-School to the school nursery.
