Welcome To Bowes Pre-School

  • Bowes Pre-School is situated within the grounds of Bowes Hutchinson’s CofE (Aided) School,
  • In the rural village of Bowes near Barnard Castle.
  • Small and friendly Pre-School
  • Committee run
  • Registered charity.

Bowes Pre-School offers a high standard of care and education.

We encourage the children to be explorers, investigators and questionners. To use their senses and their imagination to think creatively, to seek out knowledge and discover the world around them.

The Pre-School is registered with Ofsted to care for no more than 20 children per session in the early years age group.

We are able to take children from approximately 15 months of age however please contact us if you would like more information.

We welcome all children including any with additional needs. We also welcome children from outside the catchment area who will be attending other Primary Schools.

We endeavour to ensure that children attending Pre-School feel safe and happy in our quality, caring environment.  They can play and learn with their friends while using a variety of high quality resources and participate in activities that broaden their experiences.

We have excellent links with Bowes Hutchinson’s CofE (Aided) School, arranging joint activities and trips with the Infant Class. Our children lunch with the older children every day and often play together in the shared play areas.

Both School and Pre-School are proud of the friendly family atmosphere where each child is treated as an individual.

We follow OFSTED (Office for Standards In Education) rules and have been regularly inspected by them.  Our last inspection took place on 3rd July 2014 and stated that:

"Staff have the highest aspirations for each child in their care and are committed to helping them reach their full potential in their learning and development."
