To Our Centre - Barley Lane Montessori Preschool/ Breakfast/after school/ Holiday club - ‘your child’s journey begins here’

We are a Montessori setting and are registered for children aged 2-11 years old. We are located in the St. Pauls Community Centre on Barley Lane.

The sessions within the Centre are split into Breakfast club, two Pre-School sessions, an after-school club which runs during term-term only and a holiday club which runs out of term time for all school holidays except Christmas break.

We provide varied Preschool activities for children within the centre hall which consist of activities based on Early learning provision and the EYFS curriculum as well as a Montessori integrated curriculum. The activities provided promote children’s learning in Personal Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical development, Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design.

The after-school club also holds these areas of provisions as well as additional planned activities/areas of provision set up for older children key stage 1 and 2 including an arts & craft table, board games area, homework table etc. Homework support is provided to all the children attending afterschool club.

Age related activities are set up according to the age range and development of children present at the centre, which is also linked to their individual interests and abilities.
All children are included in the planning of the activities – this is taken from observations, next steps, and needs of children and shared interests in order for children to reach their highest individual potential.

We also run a holiday club during school holidays and provide various activities for children based on their interests and current learning. Trips are organised weekly for children, these have included trips to legoland, educational visits to the planetarium, park visits etc. Activities within the centre have included movie days, cake making, barbeques, clay modelling, science projects etc.

Please get in touch with us for further information.

With best compliments

Centre Manager
