About Tithe Barn Preschool

The Tithe Barn Preschool has been established in Bishops Cleeve for over 45 years, firstly ran by Mrs Jean Mason (1972-1992) then Mrs Lenora Smith (1992-2016) at the iconic Tithe Barn. Two Qualified Primary School Teachers, Samantha Fisher and Cathy Lea, took over the ownership in September 2016.

The Tithe Barn Preschool takes children ages 2, 3 and 4 years old. Children from the preschool go to many of the surrounding primary schools within the area, including Bishops Cleeve Primary Academy, Grangefield, Woodmancote, Gotherington and Treddington.

We are open term time 9am – 3pm. Children bring their own packed lunch.

We accept the 15 Hours and 30 Hours Government Funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. The term after your child turns 3, they are eligible for the Universal 15 Hours Funding and parents can check their eligibility for the 30 Hours Funding on the Childcare Choices website.

We charge £4.70 per hour for Non-Funded children and £3.50 per hour for Funded Children (Please see Parents T&Cs Policy for more information).
