Platform 3 is a charity run Pre-School Playgroup that is well established in Burgess Hill. In February 2012 we moved to Manor Field Primary School. Previously the Pre-School had been run from the Pavilion at Janes Lane since 1992.
We are open 5 days a week, term times only.
Our opening times are:-
Monday 9am – 3pm
Tuesday 9am – 3pm.
Wednesday 9am – 1pm.
Thursday 9am – 3pm.
Friday 9am – 12pm.
The Pre-School is for any child aged 2 to school age. We operate using a waiting list but also take into account age, siblings already enrolled, additional needs and other factors before offering a place.
We accept both two and three year old free entitlement funding. We provide support to children with additional needs and will work with parents and other professionals involved with the child in order to ensure the best possible care and education for each individual child.
The OFSTED inspection on 18/07/2012 awarded the setting an overall rating GOOD.
Many of our children go on to Manor Field Primary School. We have forged an excellent relationship with the school, maintaining regular contact with school staff and enjoying access to many of their facilities. We can therefore provide the ideal springboard to ensure a smooth transition for you child from Pre-School to Reception class. We also support transition to other schools in the area and feel that all children will benefit from having been part of a larger school environment when transferring to their chosen school.
