About the Cranfield University Pre-School
In our last two inspections by Ofsted (the UK’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) CUPS was awarded Outstanding in all areas.
Its main facility is a large bright room, with areas for quiet time, computer skills and creative arts. There is also a separate room for music and movement and other physical activities. There is an enclosed garden for outside play. All CUPS staff:
- have a relevant early years qualification
- are committed to ongoing training
- are all trained first aiders, and
- have passed all Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
The staff to child ratio meets Ofsted guidelines.
Term-time only: Monday-Friday 8,50am-12pm
