Pre-school and Nursery

St Michael’s Pre-school and Nursery

One of the best ways we serve the community of Stoke Gifford is through the work of our professional pre-school and nursery.


Our nursery provides full day care for children aged 0 – 5 years.

We have a dedicated, professional staff team. We follow a programme of learning through play indoors and outside.

We are open on weekdays from 8 am to 6 pm all year round, except for Bank Holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year.


St Michael’s Church Pre-School is what many of us used to call playgroup, but with a carefully structured programme of learning through play, indoors and outside.

Our professional staff provide morning and afternoon sessions for 3 and 4-year-olds, on weekdays during school term times.

Our History

The Pre-School at St Michael’s Church began life as a small Playgroup in 1989. Back then we gathered in the Old School Rooms next to the Village Green (which is now home to our wonderful Coffee Shop). In 2003 the Old School Rooms were modernised and enlarged. We moved into a new bigger meeting space. But the needs of the community kept growing and so did our workload. So in 2008, the Pre-School expanded to include a full-time Nursery as well, and we moved into the large Old Vicarage right next to the Church building. We now serve over 100 families each year. We continue to develop our wonderful building and gardens. And we still love nothing more than seeing little children grow and learn as they play together.


Our staff team are dedicated, professional and care for the children in a loving environment. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum which is designed especially for the needs of children aged 0 – 5 years. Woven into our planning we include Christian songs and Bible stories and pray to our special friend, Jesus.
