Welcome to Bede Burn Kindergarten, we are a privately run day nursery situated on Bede Burn Road in Jarrow and have been providing quality childcare since March 2013.
At Bede Burn Kindergarten we aim to provide a happy, secure and caring atmosphere which encourages young children to flourish and grow as learners. Our fully committed and motivated team work very hard to create an atmosphere where children learn through play and exploration.
We can presently care for up to 78 children at any one-time aging from 6 weeks old up to 5 years old where it is time for them to move into schools.
At Bede Burn Kindergarten we pride ourselves on providing quality childcare that is also affordable for our local community and this shows as all our nurseries hold Ofsted gradings of either Good or Outstanding. There are a variety of grants and funding options available for eligible parents, we accept all childcare vouchers and we a part of the new Government tax free childcare scheme.
The nursery is home to a large, natural outdoor garden for children to explore and enjoy, while indoors we use high quality resources and carefully planned activities to help support the development of all the children in the nursery.
Our Ofsted - December 2016
In December 2016 we had our most recent Ofsted inspection and shortly after in the following January the report was published. We are delighted to share with you that we have received a Good grading in all areas.
Everyone at the nursery is proud of the result but we are determined to not stop there. We are constantly aiming to improve upon what we offer to our children and to push towards the outstanding grade that we know we can achieve in our next inspection.
If you wish to read our latest report you can find out about it on our Ofsted page.
