Ofsted and Learning through Play

Learning Through Play

“Brize Norton Preschool offers a stimulating and enriching, home from home environment that perfectly suits the younger children right up to the older school learning children.  My daughter loves being dropped off here and has made lots of friends, both children and adults! A magical preschool”

Children learn about themselves and the world around them through play. At Brize Norton Village Preschool your child’s play is supported and extended in a friendly and caring environment. In line with Early Years Foundation Stage guidance, Brize Norton Village Preschool offers continuous provision of these areas of learning:

  • Construction
  • Books / Reading Area
  • Malleable Area
  • Paint and Graphics Area
  • Sand Play
  • Music and Sound making
  • Mathematics Area
  • Collage and Modelling
  • Water Play
  • Writing and Mark-Making
  • CT (information technology)


We do lots of cooking and baking at preschool. We grow vegetables and fruit on our allotment and use them for cookery

Our secure garden area provides each child with lots of opportunities for exploring and learning. There are areas for activities and experiences that every child will enjoy, planned around the above areas of learning and the interests of each child. In conjunction with the children’s own exploration and play, adult-led focused activities are planned on a weekly basis. These activities enhance the continuous provision of the areas of learning and ensure that every child’s individual interests and learning needs are met.


“It’s like a big family and all the children are happy and comfortable”
