  • 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.

  • Bunnies have been exploring their taste buds this morning through trying lots of different types of fruits.
  • Ladybirds have been making their own self portraits today and identifying their own facial characteristics. The children have then got messy and made some slime mixed with glitter. They were able to stretch it, smell it and feel how gooey it felt.
  • Holiday club had a wonderful day yesterday at the Mining Museum at Threlkeld. The children explored the caves, the equipment used in the mines, went on a steam train and had a really good play in the park. What a busy day!
  • Our apprentice Chloe, who is currently working towards her level 3 EYE qualification, was observed today taking a group of children to make some tasty Pizzas. The children were able to explore the different textures, smells and tastes of toppings 🍕
