Welcome to Brishing Barn Playgroup!

We run 39 weeks of the year and operate during term time only.

Our opening times for each daily session are 9.00am until 1.00pm, this includes garden time from 11.30am until 12.00pm. At 12.00pm we sit and have our lunches.

Children are asked to bring in their own packed lunches and we promote a healthy eating ethos, making sure everyone is aware of any allergies.
After lunch we have quiet time which is spent either sitting looking at books, listening to stories or engaging in small discussions using books as our guides.

Playgroup is for 3 to 5 year olds wanting to use their free 15 hour entitlement from the Government. We use the EYFS, observing the children, planning for their individual needs and progressing them through the EYFS thus enabling them to be prepared for when they go to school. Our aim is to ensure each child can count to 10 or beyond, be able to dress themselves with outside clothing and for them to be able to write our their names, being able to recognise and sound out the sounds of each letter, progressing the children from 22-36 months to 40-60 months in all 7 areas.

We are a small and friendly group and our daily intake is limited to 16 children. There are 3 qualified members of staff and we operate a Key Person system. The normal ratio for this age group 1 to 8, but we are very lucky to have a third member of staff helping us.

Our daily routine consists of free play time, registration and circle time, a daily craft activity, sand and water play and a structured Key Person time. We also provide a snack with milk or water during the morning session.

Should you require all year round care, please see the Day Nursery information.
