• Celebrating the seasons

Hope Preschool is located at Loxley Hall, in the village of Hope,  Derbyshire. Our setting offers early years care and education for children aged 2-4 years. Our friendly staff welcome children from the surrounding villages in the Hope Valley and we currently provide for children from Hope, Castleton, Edale and Bradwell.

We aim to provide a varied and fun enabling environment which allows our children to develop personally as unique individuals, whilst at the same time learning social skills alongside their friends.  Well-qualified staff are here to help each individual child to progress and be happy within our caring, nurturing setting.

Sessions  run from Monday to Friday during Derbyshire term time. Children can attend morning sessions from 9.15-12.15 from Monday to Friday. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays many of our children stay for our full day sessions from 9.15-3.15  Please see our Pre-school Day page for more details!

We are guided by the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and are monitored and inspected by Ofsted. We work hard to ensure that all our children are supported to achieve their full learning and development potential.

Our staff are, of course, DBS checked and all are trained in paediatric first-aid.
