Welcome To Bowes Pre-School
Bowes Pre-School is situated within the grounds of Bowes Hutchinson’s CofE (Aided) School, in the rural village of Bowes near Barnard Castle. The small and friendly Pre-School is run by a Committee of parents and is a registered charity.
Bowes Pre-School offers a high standard of care and education. The Pre-School are registered with Ofsted to care for no more than 20 children in the early years age group. We are able to take children from approximately 1½ years of age however please contact us if you would like more information. We welcome all children including any with additional needs. We also welcome children from outside the catchment area who will be attending other Primary Schools.
We endeavour to ensure that children attending Pre-School feel safe and happy in our quality, caring environment. They can play and learn with their friends while using a variety of high quality resources and participate in activities that broaden their experiences.
We have excellent links with Bowes Hutchinson’s CofE (Aided) School, arranging joint activities and trips with the Infant Class. Our children lunch with the older children every day and often play together in the shared play areas.
Both School and Pre-School are proud of the friendly family atmosphere where each child is treated as an individual.
We follow OFSTED (Office for Standards In Education) rules and have been regularly inspected by them. Our last inspection, in January 2009, stated that Bowes Pre-School ‘meets the needs’ of all children through recognising their uniqueness to provide an inclusive, welcoming and caring service. The Inspector also stated that children ‘enjoy their time’ in the group and are eager to be involved in the choice of interesting play activities on offer.
We hope that you will find this website useful. If you would like to arrange a visit or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the Manager or Deputy Manager on 01833-628052 or email email@example.com.
