Bramford Pre-School Playgroup



We are a small village playgroup, offering care from the age of 2 years until primary school.  We have a secure modern building and enclosed garden area.

Our friendly and enthusiastic staff will encourage your child to develop and grow to the best of their ability in a safe and happy environment.

We are open Monday to Friday during term time and selected school holidays. Our core opening hours are 9.00am to 3.30pm with the option of additional care between 8.00am - 9.00am

We accept all Government funding - 2 year old, 15 hour universal and 30 hour extended.  Payment is also accepted through the government Tax-Free Childcare scheme.  Please contact us for further information or visit the Childcare Choices website.

Although we welcome children from outside of the village, please note that attending the pre-school does not automatically qualify your child for a space at Bramford CEVC Primary School.

A fantastic Pre-School Rated 5 out of 5
One of my children has already been through this Pre-School and has now moved on to school, I also have another child who is now at the Pre-School. The first left with a good understanding of what to expect at scool as the Pre-School prepares the children for the transition. My youngest child started as a shy and introverted child. She is now happy and much more confident. She has come out of her shell and it's partly down to the encouragement she gets here. I have never, ever worried about my children while they are here. The keyworkers are amazing, they give care and attention to all of the children and are on the ball. They take into account the childrens personalities and take everything about them into consideration. I cannot recommend it enough.

Fabulous preschool playgroup Rated 5 out of 5
This is a lovely small preschool playgroup with friendly knowledgeable staff who always make the children and family/carers welcome.  They have a wide choice of activities and play equipment with free play and structured learning. My own children went here and now my grandson which he thoroughly enjoys. if you’re looking to send your little one to preschool this one is lovely and I can highly recommend it.

Excellent Pre-School Rated 5 out of 5
Our four year old daughter loves attending the Bramford Pre-School. She has made some really great friends and is always full of excitement to go in each day. She always talks positively about her day and all the many activities she has participated in. The staff are all very attentive, professional and friendly. We get updates online via facebook and recently the pre-school have introduced an online learning journey using Tapestry which we have found to be very insightful and an excellent tool to allow us as parents to follow our daughter's learning and developmental journey. We are also very impressed with how the Pre-school has kept us informed and in communicating any changes of late in line with any goverment guidance due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and current restrictions. During the lockdown we received packs with lots of activites to keep our daughter active and stimulated and were extremely grateful for these. We feel that our daughter is in a great learning environment which will really help and support her with her transition soon to Primary school and that is down to the hard work and commitment to the wonderful staff at Bramford Pre-school.
