Welcome To Bowes Pre-School
Please note - this website is being updated due to the recent Outstanding Ofsted rating and some items are slightly out of date - Many thanks!
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 took place on 3rd July 2014 and stated that "staff have the highest aspirations for each child in their care and are committed to helping them reach their full potential in their learning and development".
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
