Welcome to Layer Preschool

About our Preschool

Established over 40 years ago, Layer Preschool is an Ofsted registered preschool based in the picturesque village of Layer de la Haye. We are open to children aged 2 to 5 years from 9am to 3pm, five days a week and offer both 15 hours and 30 hours funded childcare. Committee run and situated in the Queen Elizabeth Village Hall, we are proud of our spacious facilities and fully enclosed garden. We also have access to beautiful woodland and the village recreation ground.

As a registered charity we are governed by the rules and regulations set by the Charity Commission. Layer Preschool are also members of the Preschool Learning Alliance.

Our latest Ofsted inspection was carried out in May 2016 where we were rated ‘GOOD’. Read the full report by clicking HERE.


Demi loves preschool, the staff are lovely & she’s bonded with them all, they work so hard constantly to progress, achieve goals & are very committed! I feel comfortable leaving her here & I know she is safe. The staff are also very approachable.
