Youngsters at Weaverham Pre School are in a bubble of excitement

Children are sensing something good thanks to new state-of-the-art equipment at Weaverham Pre School.

A special bubble tube and sensory play equipment have been installed at the facility, and staff are already seeing the benefits.

The children are finding new ways to relax, develop language and express emotions with the help of the new resources.

Manager Helen Walters said: “The children love the bubble tube and their faces show such excitement.

“The sensory space provides a multitude of benefits for our children, who are encouraged to explore touch and be engaged while remaining relaxed.”

The pre school was formerly called Weaverham Forest Pre School before moving into the grounds of Weaverham Primary Academy on Northwich Road last year.

In addition to the successful pre school they are now running an additional free session for

children from birth to school age with access to an all-weather outdoor play area and messy play space as well as baking and arts and crafts activities led by fully qualified EYSF educators. All parents are welcome to visit this free Stay and Play sessions that runs every Thursday (10-11.15am term time only).  Snacks are provided for children and hot drinks for parents.

Chair of Trustees Jenny Marshall, who has run the Ofsted ‘outstanding’ pre school for over a decade, is said: “It’s exciting to have the chance to develop our provision for the children of this village.

“Our amazing and talented staff were part of the move and we are thrilled with the additional space, because it has given us so many more opportunities to provide the highest possible standard of care and early years education.”
