About Us

Yarburgh Community Preschool accepts children aged 2 to 4 years old.  We welcome children with specific needs and support families in partnership with outside agencies.  We find that most children settle easier if they start with 2 sessions per week, but parents’ wishes are respected.

A typical day at Yarburgh will allow your child to experience all aspects of learning through play. We cater for children aged from 2 to 5 years and are able to take a maximum of 24 children per session.

Yarburgh Community Preschool has its own purpose built premises comprising of two large classrooms, a school office, a kitchen, a cloakroom and a bathroom with small toilets perfect for pre-schoolers. We also have a large enclosed garden with a sensory path, ride on toys, a two storey playhouse, a trim trail, a sand pit, a mud kitchen, climbing frames and other garden toys.

Recently, we have revamped our facilities and processes and the children and staff can now enjoy freshly decorated learning spaces with many new toys, modern equipment and a more supportive working environment for the planning and development of the staff.

The British Government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework sets the standards for learning, development and care of children up to 5 years old. Yarburgh aims to provide an environment where the four main principles of the Statutory Framework of the EYFS can be met:

  • Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships
  • Children learn and develop well in enabling environments in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between staff, parents and carers
  • Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates

Yarburgh’s play activities are linked to the areas of development and learning highlighted within the EYFS Framework.

Yarburgh is a wonderful place for young children to learn and develop whilst having fun. The staff are all amazing – I can’t thank them enough for looking after my two children.
