Welcome to Orchard House Pre-school

One of Ware's oldest Pre-schools

What is Orchard House?

Orchard House Pre-school is one of the longest running pre-schools in Ware. We have been established for over 20 years and our bespoke setting provides a happy and safe environment for children to learn and develop through play. Children enter via a waiting list and we have three in-takes per year in January, Easter and September.


We take children aged two to reception age, with a maximum of 26 children per session. Orchard House is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), Registered Charity number 1173751.


We are Ofsted Inspected (Ofsted inspection 19th October 2015 – Outcome GOOD). To view our Ofsted report in full please click here. Please note, the inspection took place before we changed status from being an unincorporated organisation to a CIO.


Our sessions run Monday to Friday.


From September 2017 our opening hours are:-

Morning sessions 9.15am – 12.15pm (Mon – Fri)

Afternoon sessions 12.30 – 3.30pm (speak to staff to find out which days are available)

Full day from 9.30am – 3.30pm (speak to staff to find out which days are available)

Lunch Club (12:15pm - 1:15pm) is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
