St Barnabas Pre-School Nursery

Charity no. 1033523


St. Barnabas Pre-School Nursery was established in its current form in 1992 by Ann Clements (Pre-School Supervisor) for children in the Joydens Wood area, having originally opened as a playgroup in March 1980. Sharon Bransgrove is the Deputy Pre-School Supervisor and together they are joined by a team of seven Pre-School Assistants, one of whom is a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). Many families choose our nursery for its community atmosphere and warm, nurturing staff. All staff are CRB-checked and have many years' experience. Most staff are qualified in Early Years Education to NVQ Level 3 or above.

How we are managed

We are a registered charity and are, therefore, required to have a committee made up of parents of children who are at the Pre-School. We welcome new parents to join the committee and appreciate their involvement in the running of the Pre-School.
