Pre-School New Build Project

Unfortunately, due to the success of the service we provide, and the closure of nearby pre-schools, we have outgrown our current premises and without a new one, Oakley Pre-school will likely be forced to close within ten years.  As a strong part of village life, we feel that this would be devastating for the communities, and the individual families, that we serve now and in the future.


Several pre-schools in north Bedfordshire villages have already closed and we desperately do not want to be next.


To mitigate this, we have been working for some time on plans for a new, bigger premises located in the heart of the village.  This would contain purpose-built indoor and outdoor spaces with accessible access, a Forest School and space for up to 40 children.  This will ensure we can continue supporting the communities of north Bedfordshire for decades to come.


In March 2019 we were granted planning permission.  We envisaged having the building finished by September 2020 but have unfortunately encountered a few problems along the way including access issues which involved changes to the planning and of course major delays due to the Pandemic.  However, we are now in the final stages and are working towards the building being completed by mid Summer 2021.

Please click on to see latest plans.

How you can help


We continually fund raise to help keep our pre-school sustainable but are struggling to raise the amounts needed in order to secure grants to go ahead with the plans for this necessary new building.


We are asking for support from the local community to help safeguard the future of Oakley Pre-school and the future of the children who use it.

We will happily meet with you to discuss further any donation, or any other help you can offer – please contact the pre-school on the number or email address
