Welcome to Brierley Playmates Pre-school Nursery.  Our nursery was established in August 1993 and has seen many changes over the years.  We are pleased and proud to introduce you to the care and learning that we are able to offer our children.

Brierley Playmates are a registered charity whose committee are responsible for the financial accounting, the supply of resources and the recruitment of staff.  Parents and carers are welcome to join us as committee members or they may prefer to support our management and staff teams.  All feedback and contributions are always valued.

Our managers lead our staff team with a view of reaching their full potential, in turn this impacts greatly on the professional service that we are able to offer.  Children soon settle in our environment, which is set in a wonderful parkland.  We are a small provision and well known locally having a well-thought of, and recommended reputation.  Every child has a key worker who focuses on personalised learning and social engagement enabling children to develop their knowledge and skills individually and being part of a group, journeying on to their next steps in preparation for school.

Our provision works closely with local schools, Barnsley Start and Family Services, and we are a registered member of Pre-School Learning Alliance.  We work in accordance to current legislation being regulated by Ofsted.  Please use the link below to view our last Ofsted Inspection Report.
