Harcourt is an 'outstanding' pre-school located in Westbury Park, North Bristol. It's ideally situated close to some fantastic Primary Schools.
Harcourt was established in 1956 and the name ‘Harcourt’ derives from our first location in a room in Harcourt Road. For many years we have been based in St Alban's Church hall, renting space from and being run independently of the church.
We are a co-operative, non-profit making organisation with a strong ethos of providing excellent, quality childcare in a safe and stimulating environment. We are an exceptional team of staff, all mothers ourselves, who have a wealth of experience and are highly qualified. Most importantly, we love working with children of this age group and establishing strong foundations with their families.
We believe that pre-school should be fun, supporting a child's developmental journey resulting in a smooth, happy transition to their chosen primary school. We are extremely proud of our reputation, popularity and strong links with the local community. This enhances the curriculum and wonderful first-hand learning experiences for our children.
Harcourt Pre-School is a nurturing and safe environment in which children can learn through play, where enjoyment and fun are linked with discovery and learning.
We're open during term time only with the following hours:
Monday to Thursday 9.00-3.15
We offer flexible sessions to suit your requirements with a combination of morning/ afternoon sessions and the option of a lunch club. We welcome visitors and would love to show you around our wonderful pre-school.
