  • Pre-school rooms

    We aim to ensure that your child is ready to start school by building upon independence and educational skills every day.

    The main skills we focus on with our children are:

    • Learning to write names.
    • Recognising numbers to 20.
    • Recognising the alphabet phonetically.
    • Social interaction with peers.
    • Mealtime Independence (Serving own food and pouring own drinks)
    • Putting on own coats and shoes.

    To ensure the highest standard of care and attention from our outstanding staff, our child ratios are 1 adult to 8 pre-school children.

    In pre-school we have an Interactive Smart Board that all the children access. They are given lots of different experiences on the board to help with their individual learning.

  • Children learn most of their skills through their own play. Purposeful play is an essential part of the learning process. Play is a powerful motivator, encouraging children to be creative and develop their ideas, understanding and language. Through play, children explore, apply and test out what they know, and learn when they feel confident and secure.

    The staff are great. My child is really embracing Pre School and is benefiting from the Practitioners fab ideas.

  • The children in Pre-school were very fortunate to see some Frogs today. They discussed how a Frog develops from a tadpole and how they feel and look. Next they will be looking at how a Caterpillar turns into a Butterfly.
  • Spring is here! Pre-school and Toddlers have been planting some beautiful flowers today on our orchard. The boys and girls have then made their own maps to find a fairy that has been hiding in the trees and searching for fairy mushrooms and acorns as clues. We have also been using the chalk boards to make marks and playing with the cars.
  • Wow look how well Dolphins can cut with scissors, a simple fine motor skills activity that keeps them busy for a long time and they were very proud of their achievments! Well done all ✂️✂️

  • Caterpillars have enjoyed washing the babies today. Staff and children interacted well and discussed the different body parts and facial features. The boys and girls pointed out where the eyes, nose and mouth were.
  • What a lovely day to be playing outside 🌞
  • Preschool really enjoyed time on the orchard this afternoon planting some plants in this glorious weather, spring is on its way. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
  • This morning in Caterpillars, Aimee carried out a baking activity with the children. The children were taking turns in adding the different ingredients to the bowl. They helped to mix the ingredients together and loved when it turned to dough
