Latest News

(September 2017)

Another school year is coming to an end and once again we have had another amazing year, lots of excited children and exciting activities.  Six of our children will be leaving us to go to school and we wish them all the very best in their new schools.  We shall still have lots of children staying with us and we shall be welcoming a few more in the new school year.

During this last term we have been very busy.  We have visited Brington Primary School on Wednesday afternoon and have had a teddies bears picnic, watched the school children's play and enjoyed playing with the reception class.  We thank the school for their warm welcome and allowing the pre-school children a glimpse of what is to come.  We had our family trip out to a very hot, but enjoyable day at Gulliver’s Land, very few children were there so we managed to have a go on lots of rides.  We have also just enjoyed six weeks at Forest School, cooking marshmallows, playing dens, making potions, whittling sticks, blowing bubbles through tubes and much much more.  This is always a highlight in our pre-school calendar and we thank Brington Chauntry Trust for supporting children to attend these sessions.

We still have a few places left for September and we are able to take children from 2 years upwards.  If you have a child and would be interested in sending them to a small friendly pre-school, please get in touch with Jenny on 01604 770083, so we can arrange a visit and give you more information.



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.
