Clockhouse Pre-School Beckenham
We are currently, temporarily closed to the public, in line with UK government advice to reduce the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus.
Please use our contact page to send a message to us, but do not visit us at this time.
Established in 1990, we are a registered charity, run by a committee of current and ex-parents and current and ex-members of staff. The Pre-School is Ofsted inspected and is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. We hope for a lot of parental involvement both on the charity committee and in our day to day sessions.
We have five regular staff members with up to 30 children each session and welcome parents and volunteers who want to come in and help, learn or play. We hope that you and your children will make new friends and spend many happy hours with us.
We are committed to the principles of Learning through Play and we follow the Early Year Foundation Stage as published by the Department of Education. An outline of this is included in our prospectus along with information on some of the activities we provide to support children's development.
We use Tapestry (an online learning journal) to keep in touch with parents and families, share examples of what we've been doing and record children's progress. This is updated regularly and when you accept a place with us you'll get a Tapestry log in, so you can look at your child's learning journal at any time.
"the staff here provide a wonderful environment for your child to grow and develop in. It is a warm and caring place, where the individual needs of each child are catered for."
"Children are motivated to learn and make good progress from their starting points... Staff are friendly, kind and caring and have good relationships with children...."
