We aim to offer flexible arrangements for parents and carers, so sessions can be taken in any combination provided we have space available.
Berinsfield Pre-School is a registered charity and is managed by a small committee made up of volunteers who are parents and carers.
We are a member of the Early Years Alliance (EYA) which is a charitable national voluntary organisation to promote the development and education of children under school age.
At Berinsfield Pre-School we pride ourselves on understanding the children as individuals. We adapt our environment and routine to ensure every child is included, whatever their individual needs.
The pre-school itself includes a quiet room for “Spirals”, “Treasure trove”, Maths Literacy, and 1:1 activities and a large playroom for a computer area, the home corner, an arts and crafts/messy area, and a construction area. Activities are varied and are changed for each session. Our outdoor area is well maintained with an ‘active play’ zone and covered porch, enabling outside play in all weathers. We have a big sandpit, a music space, a mud kitchen, a growing garden, and many different types of play equipment.
