Pre School Facilities

Extensive grounds to the rear of the school which incorporates outdoor climbing equipment and a wild life garden. Inside the unit there is a central area that has been divided into the following:-A Graphics Area - to encourage mark making and early attempts at writing.

Water and Sand Play – used indoors and outdoors.

Malleable Materials – including play-dough, clay and cooking opportunities.

Role-Play Area – to explore different roles and relationships using costumes and props.

Small World Play – to encourage use of imagination for example using the doll’s house, garage with cars and wooden railway.

A Creative Area – where children can paint, use chalk and select various materials to cut, stick and paint and develop their own creative ideas, including junk modelling.

Outdoor Play – the outside area is partially covered allowing pupils to play outside every day. It is a safe and secure environment where the children can observe their surroundings and develop their fine and gross physical motor skills.

We are exceptionally well resourced with both small and large construction materials – including large plastic and wooden bricks and construction kits including Mobilo and Lego. Activities include a range of wheeled toys, climbing frame, balls, beanbags, tunnels and much more.

ICT is an integral part of the pupils learning. The children use a variety of software and can choose the stand alone computers, I-Pads or work with their peers on the interactive white board. The unit also benefits from a separate cloak room, a disabled wet room, a classroom and a kitchen. However, this is only a snapshot of our excellent Pre-School. To get a real sense of our achievements we recommend you contact us and arrange a visit with your child. We look forward to showing you why Barford St. Peter’s Pre-School is a special place where children are happy, well cared for and able to discover their potential.
