About Biggin Pre-school
Biggin Pre-school is a well-established group with years of experience in providing pre-school care and education in the local community.
We are an OFSTED rated Good pre-school and our inclusive setting is situated within Biggin C of E Primary School. We have an allocated classroom exclusively for pre-school which provides a bright and welcoming environment for learning, in addition to our own garden which is full of resources and areas for the children to explore.
Children are welcome at Biggin pre-school from the age of 18 months. Free funding is available to all 3-4 year olds. In addition some 2 year olds are also eligible for free funding under the new criteria. Advice on eligibility of funding for your 2 year old is available through Derbyshire County Council (01629) 539319.
We are non-profit making charitable organisation run by a dedicated parent committee. The committee support the 3 members of staff in providing a safe and happy childcare setting. Our staff are fully qualified to level 3 in childcare and enhanced DBS checks are renewed every three years. Qualified paediatric first aiders are available at each session.
All children are allocated a key worker which enables them to spend time getting to know each child as an individual and in turn supporting them to fulfil their potential. Our aim is to provide a safe, caring, secure environment which encourages children to continually develop.
Using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as a framework, activities are child centred with their abilities and interests being fully addressed. We encourage children to develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes from first hand experiences.
Transition into full time education is very important at Biggin pre-school and we have formed strong links with the school in which we are set, in addition to surrounding schools, to ensure we make this an easy and exciting experience for your child.
