The Pre-School Room

The Pre-School Room

Our pre school room runs from 3-5 years of age. We have a core team of staff in this room and work on a 1:8 ratio. We promote independence, through care routines and through play.

The room is split into different areas to promote a wide range of learning. In addition there is a separate bathroom to encourage independence.

The children have open access to the nursery garden, as well as wider community walks – our children particularly enjoy nature walks, collecting resources and bringing them back to nursery to further explore.

The nursery offers a secure and fun environment for children. The emphasis is on learning through play and encouraging children to develop their skills in a safe and loving environment.

We use a flexible approach to planning following our Curiosity Approach to learning. The staff are perceptive of children’s interests during self-initiated play and use questions to challenge the children’s thinking and development of language skills.

We try to blend free play with a sequence of structured activities that are carefully geared towards the needs of the children and their transition into school.
