Kensworth Lower School Opens Early Years Extension

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

We are delighted to announce that the Early Years extension at Kensworth Lower School in Bedfordshire has been completed ahead of contract, and in time for the beginning of the autumn term. To the delight of the teaching staff, it took just 16 weeks from the date that the contractors moved onto site before handover of the new setting. The pre-school now has provision for up to 20 children between the ages of 2 and 5 years, with some fantastic play and learning facilities.

The main area is a flexible space allowing a safe and secure environment for children to play and learn, along with supporting facilities such as a new office and toilets. There’s also an external canopy area, and the existing school entrance has been much improved.

The facility was officially opened by the Bishop of Bedford on 18th September. Headteacher Anna Kentish was very happy with the finished result: “PCMS made great efforts to ensure that there was minimum disruption to the school during the construction phase, and we now have a new early year’s facility we can be proud of. We will also be using the space for wrap-around care such as our breakfast and after-school clubs, and possibly even a holiday play scheme.”
