Pre-School Room (3 - 8 years)

Picture 1

It's hard to believe that your little angels have reached the age of three years, but it is at this age we get them ready so they can spread their wings and fly into the big, wide world.

 

We work very closely with each child and emphasis learning through fun. 

 

Staff follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum learning goals to ensure that all children's progress is recorded and that all activities are planned carefully for each individual.

 

We liaise with the local schools as part of a network where qualified teachers and Early Years consultants come into the nursery on a regular basis to help is plan different activities and to offer advice on curriculum changes.

 

Throughout the day, children can busy themselves at the mark making table, art and craft trolley, maths and science areas, computer station, and much much more, all of which develop essential skills.

 

The Pre-School Rooms are divided into specific learning zones, enabling children to take part in activities that promote:

 

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Literacy
  • Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

 

Children with Special Educational Needs and those who have English as an additional language are very well planned for and we receive specialist support from the local councils and schools.

 

We welcome some very special guests throughout the year, including the police, fire service, dentists and nurses.

 

To support their learning and understanding, we take the children on supervised trips to the local police station, supermarket, park and high street (with prior parental consent)

 

And as a way of encouraging children to be an independent as possible, they serve and feed themselves, choose their own snack, help set up and tidy away activities, and independently use the toilet.

 

We value the close relationship we have with parents, so in addition to the weekly diaries we send out, we also hold more formal parents’ evenings twice a year, where you can see your child’s progress.

 

When your child moves to school, we send completed transition documents so that the school can see the stage at which he/she is at and a learning journey profile, which has a detailed history of your child’s learning.
