The Children are loving our new side gate and being able to make full use of the Front Garden now and thoroughly enjoyed a visit from a local dentist yesterday! They have been busy making our "Christmas Tree" from cable reels for the Christmas Tree Festival in Barton too!
Preparations are well under way for our Carol Singing at Sainsburys on Friday 14th December! We will be there from 1-5pm and would love to see as many of you as possible joining in!
Barton-le-Clay Pre-school has been together for over 30 years. The format has changed over time but we are a longstanding feature within our village, taking children from two years old.
Giving your child a good Pre-School experience is very important to us. For many children, Pre-School is their first experience in a structured setting socialising with large groups of children. It is an opportunity to learn, share, follow instructions and begin the foundation for learning which will occur in their first year at school.
We practice "In the Moment Planning" for more information please see our page entitled "In the Moment"
Barton-le-Clay Pre-School was originally run from Barton Village Hall by a team of Volunteers and in 2010 it moved into the purpose built ‘Our Space’ building in the grounds of Ramsey Manor Lower School. It’s a lovely place full of engaged children and passionate practitioners. Of the 15 current members of staff, 9 have had children attend the Pre-School. In fact 2 of the team were children at the preschool years ago!
Our Pre-School will soon be expanding even further. The Site Managers house next to pre-school will hopefully soon be part of Pre-School too, offering more space to accommodate the new funding in September 2017 and even more garden space. Watch this space!
The pre-school is registered with Ofsted, and is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. It is a registered charity (reg. charity no. 1023883) and is run by a voluntary management committee who employ trained and experienced staff to provide a safe and happy learning environment for the children in our care.
