As children grow with us they soon become ready to enjoy new challenges.
Our Pre-school boys and girls continue to learn new skills and experiences through structured play and are also encouraged to participate in games and activities that will begin to prepare them for school. In this way we hope to foster an enthusiasm for learning that will grow throughout their school life.
This group caters for 3 to 5 year olds. Our aim is to promote all aspects of child development through play based activities and the continuous provision. The pre school group follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance, observing each child and planning activities to further development and skills.
The pre-school room is split into different areas of continuous provision with most toys and equipment on low level shelving to enable children to self-select. Practitioners encourage learning through play, allowing children to learn through play is how they learn best and helping them to build self-confidence without forcing them to do things that they don’t wish to.
Each child is assigned a key-worker who will monitor and encourage their development.
Fresh air and exercise is provided during daily outdoor play in our playground, aswell as visits to the nursery allotment or walks in the local environment.
We are very lucky to have our own Early Years Professional who works with the children in their Pre-School year, focusing on ICT, Mathematics and Writing.
We have weekly visits and activities for our Pre-Schoolers which include Dancing with Sandersons, Spanish with Bilinguasing and Football.
