A wide range of learning experiences
  • Pre-school rooms

    12615333_930103437088321_4116369597507790850_oOur pre-school rooms give the children with a wide range of learning experiences that prepare them for the big step of starting school.

    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.

  • We are now taking bookings for February half term. If you would like to book a space then please phone the nursery  where we will be happy to help.
  • Ladybirds have been practicing developing their fine motor skills today and using the pegs to hang pieces of material onto a washing line. It took a lot of concentration but everyone did so well!
  • Today Turtles have been solving puzzles through matching different body sections to the right picture. They loved trying to work out what face went with what body and legs and then discussing with their friends and practitioners their own individual facial features and what colour their hair and eyes were.
  • We have had a visit today from a boy who attended the nursery between the age of 2 and 4 years old. Noah who is now 11, always showed an interest with food at an early age and it has been lovely to have him helping out in the kitchen for the day with Dinner Time Dave and Ryan. We look forward to seeing Noah again in the future.
  • The boys and girls from Dragonflies and Ladybirds have had a very exciting afternoon visiting the residents at The Henry Lonsdale Trust, Rosehill care home. We put on our coats and enjoyed a wintery walk together. Once we got there we sang the Christmas Carols that we have been rehearsing, gave the residents a hamper and the cards that we made and then had a very special visit from Santa! They were all very intrigued to find out how Santa got there and where was Rudolph as we definitely did not see him on our way in!

  • Pre-school children have had a very exciting afternoon today. We have had some special visitors who have come to talk to all of the boys and girls about what Police Officers do and the importance of stranger danger. We also got to try on the different types of uniforms and have a look around the police van. 
Thank you to Cumbria Police who have put some big smiles on our children's faces.

  • Ladybirds children couldn’t wait to make their friend some cupcakes for his 4th birthday today! This gave the children the opportunity to develop their physical and gross motor skills as well as maths. The boys and girls couldn’t wait for them to bake so that we could sing happy birthday. 🎂
  • Special delivery posted today 🎄🎅🏻
  • Don't forget that we have a bake sale in the baby unit entrance with lots of tasty treats still available for a Friday treat. All donations are going to Children in need 2018.
