We promote equality and believe all children are individuals.
Barkway Preschool is a small non-profit making organisation and a registered charity (1004083). The preschool is run by caring, qualified staff along with a management committee. All involved with the preschool are CRB checked. To view our most recent inspection report visit the Ofsted website.
We work in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The EYFS is a play based curriculum for children from Birth to 5 years of age. Each individual child is at the centre of the EYFS, with staff working to develop strong relationships with the children and their families. Developing these relationships enable Early Years Practitioners to plan stimulating and fun activities based on their interests and abilities to allow each childs learning to progress.

At Barkway Preschool the focus is very much on providing a safe, fun and stimulating environment where children can learn through play.
The classroom and spacious outside area provides a spacious setting with plenty of room for energetic two to five year olds to explore and play, inside and outside in our lovely garden. The children have opportunities to grow physically and emotionally, to develop their communication and language skills and to increase their self-confidence and self-awareness. When they are ready, more adult lead activities help to prepare them for the more formal setting of nursery or school. The staff and children are always very happy to welcome visitors so please drop by to join in the fun!
