The Pre-school nursery is based in the rural village of Barton near Preston, Lancashire and is a charitable institution that functions in collaboration with Barton St. Lawrence C.E. Primary School. It has existed as a provider of pre-school childcare for over 20 years, but since September 2008 has offered extended hours to meet the increasing needs of parents in Barton and the surrounding villages. It is managed by Sue Greenhalgh and open from 7.30-5.30 Monday – Friday, term time only (for term dates please see our downloads page). It is also home to the breakfast and after-school clubs which are very much in demand.
The Pre-school is an educational, friendly and welcoming environment for the children. Being a part of the school community gives every child a superb opportunity to prepare for their Reception year, helping the transition to full time education to be far less daunting for all concerned! Throughout the year the pre-school participate in whole school themes, topics and activities whenever possible.
