PreSchools and Playgroups for Darwen

Kittens Preschool

Veronica St, Darwen BB3 0AF, UK – 01254 761101

Excellent nursery. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who believes in child-led education, where the child is encouraged to observe the natural world and engage in activities that promote exploration through play. At Kittens they make very good use of space both in and outdoors.

St Barnabas CE Primary School - A Church of England Academy

Knowlesley Road, Darwen BB3 2JA, UK – 01254 702996

St. Barnabas C of E School in Darwen is possibly the nicest school anywhere. The atmosphere when you get there is amazing, it feels like home. The staff are, without exception, friendly and the children love them. The team is led by Mrs. H.M. Thomas, who's leadership is making a profound impact in the performance of the school, which on this year's Y6 results makes St. Barnabas the no. 2 school in the whole of the borough. The school performances are to an incredibly high standard thanks to the hard work of Mrs. B. Ham and her team. If you are considering sending your child to St. Barnabas, go for a visit. I guarantee that you will decide that St. Barnabas is the place to send your child if you wish your child to be educated in a caring, Christian environment.

Staff are really friendly and it feels like a safe school for any child to go to

Johnsons Swimming School

299 Blackburn Rd, Darwen BB3 0AB, UK – 01254 704488

Learnt to swim here as a youngster. The pool is very shallow that is fantastic for nervous kids. This place has a deserved reputation. Now as an adult I still love being in or on water.

My 5 year old has been going to Johnsons for the past two years. It's a small pool which is ideal for their learning and the instructors are good. They take control of the session - and the kids when they mess about - which leads to a productive session. She has achieved her 5m and 10m certificates and on her way to her 20m. I would highly recommend Johnsons in Darwen for your child's swimming lessons.
