Vision Statement

At Little Fishes we aim to provide an environment for children from 2-5 years where they can be themselves - a place where they feel listened to and valued and where they experience a sense of achievement as they move forward in their learning.

We also aim to encourage and affirm mothers, fathers and carers in their nurturing role and to foster in them and their children an awareness of God and His love for them.

A Pre-School rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted

Little Fishes Pre-school is found in the Nonsuch Hall of St Paul’s Church Centre, Howell Hill, Cheam. We operate 5 mornings a week from 9:30-12:30, for 35 weeks per year, and have been running since January 2003.

The school has been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted in a recent inspection. The Ofsted report praised the 'excellent opportunities available' to children, 'well balanced planning' for each individual child, the 'extensive range of interesting, stimulating activities available to children', 'excellent access between indoor and ourdoor environments', high parental involvement and the exceptional confidence developed by the children, commenting: 'Children are highly confident in communicating with staff as well as each other and staff and highly skilled in using open-ended questions to make the children think about what they are doing.' 

Started by three members of St Paul’s, Little Fishes has a staff of 9, most of whom have been with us from day one. Little Fishes is part of the St Paul’s with St Mary’s Charitable Trust and members from St Paul’s form the Little Fishes Management Group acting as an advisory body on behalf of the Trustees, the St Paul’s with St Mary’s Parochial Church Council (PCC).
