Oakfield Pre School

1Oakfield Pre School is a privately run childcare setting located on the beautiful grounds of Oakfield CE Primary School (formerly Bishop Lovett Middle School).

Our newly converted and refurbished nursery forms part of the schools ‘Early Years Unit’ and sits closely alongside the reception classes and key stage 1 children within a securely fenced site which looks over the school playing fields and the Solent.

‘Federated’ with Arreton St George’s CE Primary School

Oakfield CE (Aided) Primary School is ‘Federated’ with Arreton St George’s CE Primary School and the continuity of management between settings and schools will enable a smooth transition for the children entering ‘big school’.

We welcome all children to our setting, and with the help of their parents/carers, we will liaise with whichever primary school is chosen and provide a dedicated, trained member of staff to assist with the transition.

Registered & Ofsted inspected

OutstandingLogo11-12_RGBWe are regulated by Ofsted and the IW Early Years Unit, with whose standards we must comply, we are also inspected on a regular basis. Click here to see our latest ofsted inspection reports.

There is an ongoing commitment to staff training within the group and we aim to make provision for staff to upgrade their training. We close our premises for one day each summer in order to bring our staff together to attend in-house training.

The aim of the Nursery is to promote a positive learning environment in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

A wide range of opportunities are made available to the children in the recognised areas of development as set out in the Foundation Stage.

Discuss your child’s day

We try to operate an ‘open door’ policy; we are always available to discuss your child’s day with you at the beginning or end of each session. If you have a concern regarding your child or if there is a change of situation that may affect your child please let us know.

If you wish to see someone in private please make an appointment with us.


Our daily activities are very much ‘experience based’. We include time for outside play in each session in our large gardens and outside activity areas.
