We are very excited to be entering the third year of our Helperbees Preschool in our beautiful, modernised building within the school grounds. We have had a fantastic first year since we opened in September 2018 and welcomed our 2,3 and 4 year old preschoolers into St Peter’s Brafferton Primary School. 

In our cosy indoor area we provide a full range of activities including a variety of toys, games and puzzles, home corner, book corner, creative and writing area, crafts, cooking, construction and use of an Interactive Whiteboard.

We provide full day care to children aged between 2 and 4 years old, with a maximum of 21 children attending at any one time.  We are therefore able to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for young children with a home-like feel.

Thank you so so much to all you lovely Helperbees staff for truly outstanding care and support. We’re a very lucky school and group of families to have you. You’re always so cheery and helpful and never flustered….(my child) has had a wonderfully happy and stimulating time with you all and has developed so much as a result of your guidance and teaching.Thank you for all his happy Helperbees days and for prepping him so well for Reception.

Our Preschool is led by Mrs Holmes and her team of fantastic staff. We have our own self-contained outdoor play area which the children have free access to at all times, and additionally we have access to a larger outdoor area and amazing field for muddy play!
