Looe Barbican Pre-School Charity – NEWS

After nearly 20 years of being in a wooden hut on the Sunrising Estate in East Looe, the Barbican Pre-School has finally moved to a new and fully refurbished Pre-School building in Trewint Crescent.

The Barbican Pre-School is a charity set up to teach and look after local children from the age of 2 years and has seen many of the local children come and go through its doors.

On the 30th October 1989, the Barbican Pre-School charity opened its doors to local children on the Sunrising Estate in East Looe for the first time. It must have been an important moment for staff, children and the many families of Looe and one that will bring back fond memories.

Now, nearly 20 years later, those happy memories are being carried forward to the new Barbican Pre-School building in the old Methodist Church in Trewint Crescent – the new Childrens’ Centre for Looe.

The Methodist Church has more-or-less been re-built and the Pre-School is in an extension, which is part of the building.

A spokesperson for Barbican Pre-School told us, “It’s all very exciting! It’s really a building within a building, as the Barbican Pre-School has its very own entrance and exit and great new facilities which include a kitchen area, large main activity/play area, quiet reading corner, children’s toilets and an outside play area with garden! It’s all very bright, fresh and colourful and best of all – brand new!

Many people have made this move possible through lots of dedication and hard work. The Pre-school is a charity and the staff (past and present) and the committee’s members (past and present) have fought hard to reach this point. So from a mum of one of the Barbican Pre-School children I would like to say a very big thank you to you all and congratulations on such a wonderful achievement!”

If anyone reading this has any memories of times past at the old Barbican Pre-School building on the recreation ground on the Sunrising, it would be great to hear from you.

So as of the 3rd November 2008 the Barbican Pre-School’s address will be:

Barbican Pre-School
Trewint Crescent
East Looe
PL13 1ET

Tel: 01503 262948
