About Springfield Bees Pre-School

Springfield Bees Pre-School has been established since 1979 and is located in the grounds of Perryfields School, Springfield, Chalmsford.  It is run by a committee of dedicated volunteers and is registered as a charity.  Places are available for children aged from two years to statutory school age.   The setting has been judged as ‘Good’ by OFSTED with key findings stating

Staff understand how children learn. They implement secure observation, assessment, and planning procedures, which contribute to children making effective progress in their learning and development’ and ‘Children are provided with a wide variety of interesting activities that interest them and offer sufficient challenges. Consequently, children are keen to explore and investigate’.

We have excellent links with both the Children’s Centre and Perryfields School. Children are often involved in events at Perryfields School which helps to provide positive experiences in preparation for moving into full time education. These events include special assemblies such as the harvest festival.  Our children also regularly use the school library and the computer room.

All of our staff are fully qualified and continue to develop professionally via regular courses. We have specialist staff who are qualified to look after and support children with more complex learning needs. 

There is also a qualified first aider on site during pre-school hours.
