Old London Road Pre-School

Old London Road Pre-School is based in the heart of St Albans, Hertfordshire offering children aged 2-5 a secure play environment in which they can learn and develop into happy, confident, independent and competent individuals. We follow the statutory guidance of the Early Years Foundation Stage to enable your children to reach their full potential while they are in our care.

Welcome

Old London Road (OLRPS) is a community preschool that was relaunched in September 1999 by Janet Audley-Charles. It was registered as a non-profit charity in the year 2000 and follows the constitution of the Early years Alliance. Since then the preschool has grown in numbers and as of summer 2024 we had over 60 families on roll. The preschool is run by a management committee of parents and supporters. We run several extracurricular activities and fundraising events for parents and children. Please see our latest outstanding OFSTED report here.
