Pre-School

Bluebells preschool is a small and friendly setting for children from age 3 years. Our happy and stimulating preschool provides an excellent start to children's educational journey.

Established by the governors of Badby School in 2011, the setting shares the site with Badby School. Our preschool is very much part of the school community, joining in assemblies and taking part in key school events. Being part of a school setting enables children to settle more quickly in their Reception Year and supports transition between the two.

Term One

How many nursery rhymes do I know?

To start the school year Bluebells will be diving into the world of nursery rhymes! Over the next few weeks we will be talking about Humpty Dumpty and why he keeps falling of walls, what made the little dog laugh and then try to solve the puzzle of where Jack and Jill actually wanted to go before they fell down the hill! To complete the term the children will finding out where the mouse ran to and just how many potatoes they can possibly count!

The children have been on an important mission to capture the pom poms back from the jaws of the whisks, using tweezers to develop their co-ordination skills as they do so!
