Welcome to Barrow Pre School!


Barrow Pre-school is a community run pre-school. We are located in the school next to the reception classroom and are open to all children between the ages of 2 ½ and 4 years old.  We are very fortunate that as well as our own facilities, including a brilliant outdoor area, we are also able to utilise the school which ensures a smooth transition for our children moving into reception.



We are registered to care for up to sixteen children per session.

Our current session times are as follows:


Monday               Closed

Tuesday               8.45am – 11.45 am & 12.15pm - 3.15pm

(lunch provided for an extra charge)

Wednesday           9am – 12 noon

Thursday               Closed

Friday                   8.45am – 11.45 am & 12.15pm - 3.15pm


In addition the school runs an on site breakfast club and after school club  which, dependent upon spaces, is open to pre school children from the age of 3 years. 



Our fees are currently £10.20 per session.  The Government offers sponsored places beginning the term after your child’s third birthday. Each child is currently entitled to 30 hours free sessions a week. The claim forms will automatically be given to you at the appropriate time.  In addition we accept the government childcare scheme vouchers.



Each session is run by a qualified Manager and assistant Manager. At least one member of staff present at each session will be paediatric first aid trained and hold a certificate in Food Hygiene.


We are a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance (PLA) and are also OFSTED inspected. Our current inspection report is available to read below as a file.
