Preschool

Age 3-5 years

In Pre School our biggest drive is to promote your child’s independence as well as their personal, social and emotional development which is necessary for your child to be ready to go to “big school”.

The children have free-flow sessions throughout the day giving them the opportunity to develop at their own level and in their areas of interest.

All activities offered to children are a mixture of the children’s own choices and carefully planned activities by staff. This balance ensures that the children are learning and developing through their play whilst also being challenged.

As part of the Pre School environment there is constant access in a free-flow manner to the garden where the children enjoy exploring and adventuring in all weathers.

Mealtimes:

Breakfast 9am-10am

Lunch 12pm

Tea 3pm-4pm

We operate a rolling breakfast and tea-time café to ensure that there is minimal disruption to the crucial learning experiences through children’s own play. Our café times allow for a small number of children to eat at a time which works well in promoting independence through choosing their own breakfast and pouring their milk etc. It’s also a great opportunity for the children to work on their communication skills as the small groups create a social experience where they can talk to their friends and the member of staff assisting with the mealtime.

At lunchtime all the children have a sit-down meal where the children are served a meal cooked on site by our chef. We use this time to promote manners and use of cutlery.
