About us

An Ofsted Outstanding rated preschool located in the heart of Willerby in the West of Hull, we strive to deliver the highest quality childcare between the ages of 2 and 5.


At Willerby & Kirk Ella Preschool we recognise how important your child's early years' learning and development is for setting them up on the best possible path ahead in life.

We offer a welcoming and engaging environment to allow children to grow and develop, and are committed to enabling children to do what they do best: learning through play.


By following the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, the curriculum for early years, we support children to achieve their development milestones.

Our Staff

With 12 caring and experienced members of staff offering a high staff-per-child ratio our aim is to work in partnership with parents and carers to cater for every child’s needs and interests.


Willerby & Kirk Ella Preschool prides itself on being a warm and friendly environment where all children and families feel welcome. We help children to learn to respect and value one another through celebrating our similarites, as well as our differences.

Both my son and daughter attended the pre school from age 2.5 until starting school, and they have both loved their time spent there. The staff are fantastic and I believe this is what sets this preschool apart from the many others. All the staff are highly experienced, extremely friendly and inclusive to all children. This creates a happy safe environment in which enables the children to develop and learn, giving them a great foundation for their next steps. I can't recommend this preschool highly enough and would like to thank all the staff for their dedication and care over the years.

I highly recommend the Willerby and Kirk Ella Preschool.  Both of my children started at 2 1/2 years old and were so happy at the preschool, looking forward to attending each day, which speaks volumes! All of the staff are friendly and helpful and even when my daughter had some health problems and I felt very confident to leave her in their safe hands.

I can't recommend the Preschool highly enough. My daughter started at 2.5 years with no previous childcare and she settled in very quickly and very well. All the staff are fantastic, very experienced and the children love them.

My daughter has lots of fun, makes some great pictures and crafts and always comes home happy and telling me about games they've played and songs they've sung. She is now 3.5 years and the phonics teaching she is receiving is excellent too, she's regonising letters and simple words all through the work that Sue and the team do.

My daughter is extremely happy there and I wouldn't hestitate in recommending it to anyone.

My daughter attended Willerby & Kirk Ella Preschool from the age of 2.5, following in her siblings' footsteps. She loved every minute of it and looked forward to going every morning.

The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and the whole environment feels safe and happy. The wide range of activities has given her the best start in her education. From a shy little girl she has developed into a very confident 5 year old, ready for school, able to form relationships with her peers and has learnt routines, manners and so many social skills.

I can't thank them enough for helping her grow so beautifully.

My eldest son started the Willerby & Kirkella Preschool in Sept 2014, our second son currently attends and our daughter is due to start later in the year. We couldn't wish for a better place for our children to start their early years education. The children are encouraged in all areas of learning in a fun and relaxed environment.

The staff are outstanding, being skilled and extremely welcoming. It has a very warm and friendly atmosphere so not surprisingly our sons have loved attending. It is so comforting and reassuring knowing that when we leave they are in good, safe hands. We highly recommend this preschool.
