From the team who run the Ofsted rated OUTSTANDING settings Busy Lizzies Kids Club and Bengeo Playgroup we now introduce our latest setting.

Everything that we have learnt from our settings has been transferred to Busy Lizzies Preschool, but on a bigger scale!

The activities, planning and resources have been chosen with care. We have used our reflective practice from Bengeo Playgroup to ensure we have the most popular resources, themes, topics and activities that will challenge the children in a fun way.

We like to think that Busy Lizzies Preschool is a home from home. Each child is allocated a Key Person who will bond with your child and plan interesting and educational activities. Our staff have over 40 years of Childcare experience between them.

Each year we add to our large range of resources to ensure that we offer a wealth of fun activities to entertain the children. We have a covered outside area and a large enclosed Play ground which enables us to offer free flow play whatever the weather. We are also lucky enough to have a separate secure grassed play space where we also grow our own fruit and vegetables.

Your child can join Busy Lizzies Preschool the term after they turn 2 and progress to Nursery and School. We hold a transition meeting with the Nursery Teachers from local schools and provide transition reports. Nursery teachers are invited to our setting to meet their new children.

…where children feel at home.

Updates & Announcements

This week, as Thursday is world book day, ๐Ÿ“š we have our Dear zoo book tray, which the children helped decorate and match the correct sized boxes with each animal for. We also have books in the tray so the children can also write their own.
We will be celebrating world book day throughout the week. ๐Ÿ“š
