Stewartby Preschool

Stewartby Preschool Open Day

Stewartby Preschool held an Open Day on 10th March to celebrate moving into their new purpose built building.  The new building has been funded by Bedford Borough Council after its successful bid to the Department of Education for Capital money to improve Early Years provision.

The new Stewartby preschool building replaces the previous porta cabin which was in poor condition.

The new building allows for a growing demand for childcare spaces in the area and supports Bedford Borough Council’s response to the new 30 hours funded childcare scheme. 

The Preschool is charity run and is judged by Ofsted to be 'OUTSTANDING’.  The previous structure was situated on Broadmead Lower School’s site in the village of Stewartby. The new building is located on the other side allowing the two education providers to function independently whilst maintaining strong links.

Cllr Vann said: “Investing in our children’s future is extremely important and all the evidence suggests that the early years make the biggest difference. I am delighted to be opening this new building for Stewartby Preschool which will enable them to expand their intake to 40 pupils - double the number of children that they could previously care for.”

Heidi Goligher, Manager of Stewartby Preschool said: “We provide a place where children are carefully nurtured through strong partnerships, activities and challenge to develop their individual imaginations, sense of exploration and build confidence that ensures every child is ready for their next steps into their early education”

She continues: “A huge thank you to the Early Years team at Bedford borough for all their support, advice and hard work in helping us to create a setting that will be able to work with the local community to build the best outcomes for all its children and families. “
