We are a friendly and enthusiastic group, aiming to provide all our children with a secure and motivating environment in which they can develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.

“My son really enjoyed his first day at pre-school, he wanted to come back the next day and has been looking forward to pre-school all weekend!”

We follow a carefully planned curriculum in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. This allows for every child to develop at their own pace in order to achieve their full potential. The focus is on the following seven areas of learning and development: Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

  • Communication and language;
  • Physical development; and
  • Personal, social and emotional development.

These prime areas are those most essential for your childs healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the world; and
  • Expressive arts and design.

These areas of development are delivered daily in a lively and interesting way to incorporate the uniqueness of each individual child.

Learning Through Play

We believe that learning should be fun, and that children who are having fun will be learning.

12009829_809396475824299_1288403392766040485_nThe pre-school has a safe and secure outside play area, including a garden which is used by the children to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables. This is invaluable in developing the children’s interest in the natural world while having fun outside in the fresh air.

The children have the opportunity to socialise and interact freely with both children and adults. They are encouraged to respect other’s feelings and opinions and to be polite and helpful. Our aim is to allow all children to fulfil their own individual potential within a happy environment. By giving reassurance, praise and encouragement to the children, they will develop self-confidence and self-esteem.
