Pre-school is a very important time where we start preparing your little ones for school.
Our Pre-school rooms are full of exciting activities and equipment to encourage their skills and imagination to develop. They will start to develop all the necessary skills that they will need to give them the foundation they need for when they start school. They will further develop their pencil control and start writing letters including their own name, learn to cut safely with scissors, put on their own coat and shoes, start to serve their own meals and snacks and help to clear up after play and meal times.
The children are encouraged to develop a strong love of books and often love playing ‘teacher’ reading aloud to their friends. Their concentration, language and communication skills are now very strong and they thrive on the praise and respect given to them by the staff who treat them all as special individuals.
They enjoy lots of extra curriculum activities such as yoga, puppet shows, music, dance and French lessons. They grow their own vegetables, go on local trips to the Willington Marina and Findern Garden Centre and a special ‘monthly topic trip’ – often on the bus which is an adventure in itself! They perform a Christmas Nativity play at the local village church and an annual sports day in front of their friends and family.
We are incredibly proud to have Danielle, a Qualified Primary School Teacher to lead our Preschool team in order to give the children that extra head start. We can confidently say, that our Pre-schoolers really do get the very best start ready for school and we are very proud of all of our happy, clever and confident children.
