Barn Owls Room

Our Room

In Barn Owls, children are with us from around their 3rd birthday until they leave us for school, with a maximum of 24 children at a time. There is some flexibility based on individual children’s development as to when they join us – some come earlier and others are a little later, but this is discussed and planned for between the rooms as we know our children well.

We have a cosy book corner with cushions, blankets and a canopy, perfect for looking at books, relaxing or chatting with friends. There’s also a large role play area to immerse children into different topics, space for creativity and supported activities, and plenty of time to access the outdoor areas and Forest School.

There are opportunities for more focused learning in line with our children’s development and preparing them for the next chapter in their lives, as well as the freedom to express their own interests and preferences.

Early Years Curriculum

We deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) promoting all areas of your child’s development through play and planned opportunities. We use Blossom to record your child’s learning journey.


SEN Support

We operate a completely inclusive policy, and ensure all children have the opportunity to thrive.


Our staff use Makaton to help children communicate. 

Forest School

We run regular Forest School sessions throughout the week in our woodland space on site. Suitable clothing is provided to enable the activity to operate regardless of the weather.


What Our Families are Saying

An absolutely fantastic preschool where they really do put the children first, they are always doing some creative activity whether that’s forest school, baking, learning a new language or creative tasks! All five of my boys have attended Seedlings and I would highly recommend this preschool for all budding adventurers!

The communication is excellent. They always make time to listen to any issues and more importantly they act on it if you have concerns about your child’s development. If you want your child to go to a preschool that not only cares for your child to a high standard but also moulds them for school so they get the best start possible, then choose Seedlings!

Seedlings is a fantastic place to see your children grow and learn. I love the fact that our children get to experience Forest School and can make use of the outdoor space when they want to.

My daughter loves Seedlings. From day one, everyone was very welcoming and she settled in quickly. Her speech developed rapidly, and now she’s a proper chatterbox! Seedlings have been brilliant at assisting with her toilet training too. I highly recommend it to everyone.
