Welcome to Pre-School

Pre-School is the biggest room in the nursery and has lots of large windows allowing natural sun-light to fill the room all day.

Lots of things happen in Pre-School and it is always busy with our buzzing explorers. Whilst children are having fun a secret curriculum is being planned behind the scenes to ensure all elements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are met and children’s individual interests are at the heart of our planning.

There are endless opportunities to learn at every turn and all areas of learning are reinforced through ‘purposeful play’.

Every activity we do with the children is to prepare them for their next step… big school.

We have very strong links with schools in the surrounding area and working closely with the parents throughout the year, we will advise on schools to best suit your child.

We have lots of special friends who come into the nursery to provide extra learning experiences, including yoga, tennis, singing and multi-sports.

A daily routine gives children a sense of security and with Pre-Schoolers an increased sense of responsibility and independence.
