New land to be used as a natural environment setting for preschool

Barton Le Clay Preschool will create a natural experience for the children to explore, thanks to a donation of land from Ramsey Manor Lower School.

The Preschool, run by volunteers, moved within the grounds of the lower school four years ago.

Chairperson Charlotte Wardle said: “Since being in our new setting our preschool has gone from strength to strength and we are now bursting at the seams with a very healthy waiting list.”

They received a ‘good’ judgement from Ofsted at the last inspection and were recommended to improve natural sources.

Ms Wardle said: “The headteacher and governors granted the preschool use of a bit of land at the front of our building for us to create our very own new natural environment for the children to explore. This really is a fantastic opportunity that we are so grateful for.

“We will soon have a bug hotel, mud kitchen, bird boxes and a natural sensory area where we can encourage independence, explorations and fun in a natural learning environment.

“We rely heavily on donations and we would be grateful for any contributions to further enhance our garden.”
