The Barnabees (3 – 5 Year olds) are based in our adjoining building that offers plenty of space to move around as well as a ‘messy play area’, ‘quiet area’ plus their own toilet facilities. The Barnabees have direct access to a large enclosed garden which is available to use all year round.
The routine is very similar to that of the Ladybird Room although it is a little more structured which helps the children prepare for their time at school.
Our children can choose from a wide variety of equipment and resources and can help plan their days with the Barnabee staff team.
Our staff continue with the children’s ‘Scrapbooks’ to ensure parents/carers have a
comprehensive overview of their child’s time spent at Bishy Barnabees Day Nursery.
We have very strong links with the local schools which makes the transitions from Nursery to ‘Big School’ a less stressful experience.
The reception Class teachers for all our Pre-Schoolers are invited to nursery to see their new children in a familiar setting during the summer term.
We also have links with a local Forest School and all our Barnabee children are given the opportunity to experience another learning environment and take part in various outdoor activities.
