About us

Starfish Pre-school is part of Rye Community Primary School, which is turn is an Academy within the Aquinas Church of England Education Trust Limited. We provide term time only Early Years Education and consistent care for 2, 3- and 4-year olds. 

Starfish Pre-school provides morning and afternoon sessions of fun and learning through a child centred approach to the Early Year Foundation Stage Curriculum. Working with parents we personalise the care, play and learning opportunities for every child.


The children at Starfish Pre-school have access to the facilities within the main school and thoroughly enjoy visits to our forest school, balanceability bike sessions and participating in special assemblies and performances.  

Children benefit from high quality teaching which prepares them for their school life and facilitates a seamless transition into Reception. 

Throughout the session children are able to access a range of engaging resources independently whilst being supported by our highly experienced staff.

Here at Starfish Pre-school you can see everyday commitment to enabling children to grow and develop into kind, motivated, creative, curious, resilient little learners.
