Where Great Minds Are Born

Our goal at Victoria Park Hall Pre School is to prepare children for the next stage of their lives through the development of motor abilities, thinking skills and healthy interactions with their peers. 

We are extremely proud that our setting is the first in Rawmarsh to offer Forest School led activities with fully qualified Forest School staff. We abide by the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and firmly believe in children learning through play. This play is supported by our professional and knowledgeable practitioners. All our Early Years practitioners are qualified to at least level 3 in childcare and are supervised by our Deputy Manager who holds Early Years Teacher Status.

Dedicated to maximising learning

At Victoria Park Hall Pre School, we are dedicated to creating a nurturing, stimulating and welcoming environment for all our children. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive provider and our unique programs incorporate a variety of educational theories, while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning.
We have an abundance of natural resources and wildlife on our door step due to our unique location in the local parklands. We embrace our outdoor areas to maximise learning experiences for our children. Whatever the weather, we take advantage and encourage our children to explore the outdoors and interact with our outdoor classroom, whilst building creative imagination.



Childcare you can trust

Our goal at Victoria Park Hall Pre School is to prepare children for the next stage of their education. We are a well established private Pre-School that caters for children from 2 to 5 years of age. The setting is located in the heart of the local park surrounded by well cared for parklands & nature. The facility is modern, clean & very reputable with a repeatedly good Ofsted.
The setting is currently registered to care for a maximum of 24 children within the Butterfly room per session, Whilst the Caterpillar room is registered for 20 children per session.  We have found that the children attending our Pre-School benefit greatly from the smaller numbers within each session, as this gives them the opportunity to individually thrive and grow in confidence & ability at their own pace.
Our Caterpillar room is currently open to 2-3 year olds and our Butterfly room for 3-5 year olds.
Children attending our Pre-School are well prepared by our experienced team for a smooth transition to Primary School, because we pride ourselves in offering each child independence and choice by integrating social snack time and having access to their own water bottle throughout each session. We also work closely alongside the local Primary Schools to mirror some aspects of their daily routine to give the children a taste of what “big school” is all about, such as group-time and a class register.



Natural Surroundings on our doorstep

Victoria Park was once the private grounds to the Park Hall, spanning almost 14 hectares of parklands and flowerbeds. The hall was built in the 1830’s and was a lavish home to the Firth family. Both park and house were later acquired by the local council and were opened to the public in 1901 to honour Queen Victoria's 1897 diamond jubilee, hence the name. The Park Hall has undergone major refurbishment and is now the home to our Setting and other community resources.

Pre School Manager


My name is Sarah and I am the Manager here at VPHPS. I have a many childcare qualifications including a degree in Early Childhood studies. I have a wealth of skills and knowledge gained from additional training and development opportunities, which enables me to recognise and maximise the learning opportunities with the children. 

I have been managing settings in Rotherham and Sheffield for over 12 years, including a busy Forest School Nursery. 

I am profoundly passionate about providing high quality, fun and engaging experiences for the children In our setting. I fully believe in a holistic approach to learning at this young age, developing the children at their own pace through nurturing relationships with caring practitioners. We will be exploring nature, science and the arts as part of our EYFS curriculum and giving the children some new experiences which will help to support the development of their mathematical understanding, social and emotional wellbeing, as well as their communication and literacy skills.

I am really excited and humbled to be part of the team at Victoria Park Hall preschool, working in partnership with the whole staff team, the children and their families.
