Latest News

(August 2015)

We have had a very busy and exciting time this last term of the year.  We have visited Brington Primary School on Wednesday afternoons, joining with the Reception Class, playing with the children both inside and outside in the playground.  It has been pleasing to see how the children who will be going to school have settled in.  We hope transition will not be such a big step for them now as they will know where they are going and who is going to be their new teacher.

On Friday mornings we have once again been to Forest School.  Here the children have enjoyed rolling down the hill in the long grass, playing hide and seek in the wood, making potions and lots of more exciting activities.

At the end of term we were sad to say bye bye to five of our children, but wish them all the very best as they start in their new schools.

Stop Press!  As from the new term in September we are opening on Monday afternoons for the children over three years old.  This means we are now open Monday morning for all children, Monday afternoon for the children over three, Wednesday morning for all children, Wednesday afternoon for children over three and Friday morning for all children.

We also have an exciting new website showing different aspects of the pre-school - for further information please see:

If you have child aged 2 years to rising 5years who would benefit from attending a caring setting, please do not hesitate to contact Jenny Holman 01604 770083 or 07948724415 and book a visit to come and see us.

Places are limited; if you are thinking of sending your child please contact us as soon as possible.


Good news -  Ofsted visited the Pre-school in early 2015 and gave us ‘Good’.  The inspector came across to the Spinney with us and observed the children enjoying themselves making teddy houses and following a trail.  Some of the comments that she made on the report were:

  • There are warm relationships between children and practitioners, which promote children’s well being and help to develop their self confidence.
  • Children access a wide range of activities that spark their interest and encourage them to explore and be imaginative.
  • Partnership working with parents is strong and parents speak highly of staff and the difference the pre-school has made to their child’s learning and development.

You are able to see the full report here.
