We are thrilled to say that Brockenhurst Pre-School is now based in a beautiful new home on site at Brockenhurst CE Primary School. There is a fantastic indoor and outdoor space to play in and explore.
Thanks to the wonderful team at Spencers New Forest you can now take a virtual trip around Pre school by clicking here… We are so grateful to Spencers for sponsoring our big move and for all their support!
Community Brockenhurst Pre-School has been part of village life for more than 50 years. You will often see us out and about in the community – watching trains at the station, visiting the local care home or on a shopping trip to the village. We love being part of such a friendly village.
Play throughout the day We have a variety of activities both inside and out that are led by a teacher or the child. These include: water play, gardening, cooking, painting, games outside, role-play, music, small world play, craft, and sensory play. Our activities are linked to topics, seasons and festivals through the year.
Location Now that we are situated at the school there are so many benefits for our Pre-School children. They will have the advantage of familiar surroundings, getting to know teachers and classrooms, and some will be on the same site as their older siblings. Our children will also have access to the wonderful facilities the school has to offer: the field, sensory garden, playground and more. The Primary School's Breakfast and After School Clubs "Badger's Rest" are also located here, allowing Pre-School children to benefit from this facility.
Our curriculum We follow the Early Years Curriculum which tracks children’s progress from birth to the end of reception year in primary school www.gov.uk/early-years-foundation-stage
Within it there are age related expectations so children never work at a level that is not appropriate to his/her age and we differentiate all our activities in our setting. We teach children through stories, songs, games, experiences and play that match children’s abilities and interests.
Our team We have a wonderful team of highly qualified staff who provide a caring, fun, home-from-home environment for the children. They are committed to ensuring every child is happy, safe and that their individual needs are being met.
