Welcome to Ben Rhydding Pre-School Playgroup!

It’s not just Ofsted who believe our pre-school is ‘Outstanding’. Our parents and carers do too.  Get in touch to find out more, take a look at our video to see where our children have fun, learning through play in our happy, nurturing pre-school near Ilkley.




We moved into a large, bright, purpose-built building and playground in 2011, enabling our children to play indoors and outdoors whatever the weather.  With the Wharfe Valley as a stunning backdrop, and views of the Cow & Calf, we offer the perfect setting for your child to grow and develop.

Don’t just take Ofsted’s word for it, come and see for yourself. We’ll show you how we enable your children to develop into healthy, happy, confident learners.

Our Pre-School uses an online programme called Early Essence to record observations and monitor children’s development. Parents can log in from home on a computer or via an App on a Smart Phone or Tablet and translate into different languages if required. Click here to access the parents Log In page.

As one of our parents told us:

I can’t speak highly enough of the efforts the staff at the pre-school go to support the children in their care as well as their families. We feel so lucky to have access to such a wonderful setting where we know that, regardless of the difficulties of the current situation, our children will be kept safe and happy. During these difficult times, the staff worked tirelessly to ensure that we can be confident that every possible step is being taken to minimise the risks of transmission. We could not ask for more – they have our complete and unreserved trust.
