We are a warm and welcoming pre-school located in the small village of Askham Richard, on the outskirts of York. If you would like to learn more about us, please do call us to arrange a visit.

Our staff team is very experienced and committed to supporting the children and their families. It is important to us that your child is happy and secure and makes good progress in their time at Little St Mary’s. We have good links with the local community, including the local schools, Children’s Centres and Health Visitors.


Our setting works with children, parents and the community to ensure the rights and safety of children and to give them the very best start in life. All staff have Working Together – Multi Agency Safeguarding training Level 3.


Our setting is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families.


We provide an environment in which all children, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, are supported to reach their full potential. We have an experienced SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) who ensures our provision meets the needs of each individual child and liaises with specialist professionals.
