Our story

Our Lady of Lourdes Pre-school is situated in Leigh-on-Sea, close to many of our local schools. The pre-school premises were purpose-built in 2007 within the grounds of Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School and provide a secure and stimulating environment for all children from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds to learn, play and flourish.



The children have supervised access to our extensive outside areas as well as the school field where they love to explore their outside world and learn about their environment. 

We gladly welcome children with special needs and government funding is available for children of 3 years and older and eligible 2 year olds.


We are a registered charity run by a committee of parents and have been successfully inspected by Ofsted. 


For children between the ages of 2 and 5, we provide

  • breakfast club 

  • morning and afternoon sessional care

  • lunch club

  • after school club


For primary school children attending Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School, we provide

  • breakfast club

Primary school children are escorted to school by pre-school staff at the end of the breakfast club and children attending the after school club are collected from school by pre-school staff.

Please note: We are not affiliated with Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School. Attending our pre-school does not automatically entitle your child to a place at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School.
