Pre School

Age 3 to 4 years

The Pre School is set within the main school building and enjoys full use of all the facilities. Swimming, IT, gym and dance and specialist music tuition are included in the weekly timetable. Children attend morning, afternoon, short day or full day sessions. In our stimulating and well-equipped Pre School, learning is, above all, fun!

Let them be happy and safe

Establishing relationships between you, your child and the staff is key. Building your child’s confidence and independence is an integral part of our approach.

Let them explore and discover

Planting fruit and vegetables to make some tasty soup, making a marble run to see how fast they can go or discovering how many eggs our chickens have laid.

Let them be curious and creative

Finding out how bees make honey, what happens when you mix blue and yellow paint together, and why rainbows appear in the sky.

In Pre School we continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance, learning through play, both inside and outside, whatever the weather. Your child will also start to recognise and write their own name and develop their communication, literacy and numeracy skills through a combination of adult-led and child-led activities.
