Old London Road Pre-School

Old London Road Pre-School is based in the heart of St Albans, Hertfordshire offering children aged between two and five a secure play environment in which they can learn and develop into happy, confident and competent individuals.


Old London Road (OLRPS) is a community preschool that was relaunched in September 1999 by Janet Audley-Charles. It was registered as a charity in the year 2000 and follows the constitution of the Early years Alliance. Since then the preschool has grown in numbers and as at summer 2020 we had over 70 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.
