Barlow Bears



We were delighted to open our provision for two-year-olds in September 2017. Initially our provision is for 8 children, with the possibility of additional children joining us from January 2018. Currently Barlow Bears is for 2 year olds eligible for free funding and is 5 mornings a week 9am -12pm. Children are expected to attend all 5 sessions.


Our Barlow Bears play and learn in a well resourced learning environment with direct access to an exciting outdoor learning area. Our provision places a high priority on developing the prime areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, focusing on nurture, language and listening and physical development.


Barlow Bears is situated in Darley Avenue Sure Start Centre which is right next door to school and the key workers are members of the school Early Years team. Children will be included in our school community. We will be working closely with the outreach workers at Sure Start to provide support and access to a range of services for our youngest children and their families.


For further information or to place your child on our waiting list, please contact Tracey Leishman at the school office.

We encourage children who attend our Barlow Bears to also apply for a place at our full time school Nursery. Please see our admissions section for further details.
