We have been open since 1971 in Littleover, Derby and in that time have built up a reputation for providing a first class caring environment which meets the needs of all children.

All staff are fully trained and are enthusiastic, friendly and caring.

We are supported by Derby City Council’s Childcare and Family Learning Service. We are also inspected by Ofsted, which means that 3 and 4 year olds are entitled up to 5 free sessions a week with us. From April 2016 we also offer up to 15 hours funded childcare sessions for 2 year olds.

We are one of the feeder Pre-Schools for children going to either Ridgeway Infant school or St Georges Primary school in Littleover, Derby.

In our most recent Ofsted report (January 2019) we were rated as “Good” and the Ofsted inspector said – “Children are confident, capable and enthusiastic learners. They make good progress.and achieve well across all areas of their learning and development. Staff act as positive role models. They are patient, calm and respectful in their interactions with children. Staff use their knowledge of children’s interests and what they need to learn next to help them plan activities that motivate their learning.” To read the full report please click here


Since September 2016 we have become a community interest company (C.I.C), trading under the name as St Andrews Pre-School (Derby) C.I.C
