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.

  • The business owners David and Jenn, have recently been to visit Stone Eden in Guangzhou, China to conduct the second support visit. Stone Eden China is a beautiful new setting which is providing many of the local children with high quality British standard childcare. We will be developing a partnership with this setting and hope to share letters and pictures from Stone Eden Carlisle over the coming months.
  • What a fantastic learning experience some of our apprentices (Declan, Megan and Gill) had on Monday, visiting the University of Cumbria.  We had a full tour of the campus and were able to see the 'outdoor classroom' that is used for teaching sessions.

  • Yesterday the children in Turtles celebrated Diwali through making their own little lanterns. The children spread lots of glue and then placed different materials onto their lanterns to make them look beautiful and bright.
  • Pre-School have been playing in the water tray this morning and identifying letters in their names. This activity allowed them to develop their literacy skills whilst playing in the water tray.
