Hello and welcome to your community pre-school. I hope you can find all you need on our website and if not, please do not hesitate to contact me, or any of the staff for further information
Holiday club is great fun for those children transferring into school and for children in general, a school holiday is a long time not to see your friends.
Wrap around care
Alongside the nursery BYE is a wraparound care provision offering affordable childcare before and after school.
Breakfast Club opens at 7.30 a.m. for children aged 3-11 years.
East Bergholt Young Explorers
East Bergholt Young Explorers (formerly Cherry Blossom Nursery) is new and exciting.
St Michael’s Pre-School
St Michael’s Preschool operates from the Institute building opposite St Michael’s Church, Brantham.
We have been running for over 25 years, taking in children from birth to 3 years old.
Brooklands Young Explorers
Brooklands Young Explorers (BYE) is situated inside Brooklands Primary School and was set up in 2008 to provide an excellent transition into primary school and offer a quality wrap-around care provision in Brantham.
Stutton Young Explorers (SYE) is Constable Country's newest venture and located in the village of Stutton on the Shotley peninsula. Opening times are from 7.30am to 6pm during term time.
Our purpose built premises provides spacious accommodation and a safe, happy and secure learning environment. There are a maximum of 20 children per session.
At SYE we take children from 12 months old and offer a friendly and stimulating environment, promoting learning through play while following the EYFS. We have a key person system that gives each child and parent a specific key person to relate to.
Due to the vast amount of space we have within the school grounds we have a focus on outdoor learning and invite the children to come outside to learn through play and explore the world they inhabit. The physical outdoor environment provides a special stage for action and can stimulate children’s imaginations and engage their sense of curiosity as they explore their physical surroundings and learn in ways beyond what they can experience indoors. This experience is not a duplicate of what is learnt inside but an extension of it, the children enjoy “free-flow” between the inside and outside space.
