Our pre-school rooms offer a range of exciting play opportunities for all children. The spacious rooms enable children to move freely around each of the areas as they decide whether they would like to dress up in role play, get creative with the paint, play with dough, sand or water, choose their own resources in the small world and construction area or join in with stories and rhymes.
Enhanced activities with adult interaction and a structured routine are all part of preparing children for school. By following the EYFS children’s individual interests are encouraged and supported to enable them to develop their skills and reach their full potential as well as preparing them for school.
Children develop their independence skills as they help to set up the tables for lunch time, wash their own hands and help to tidy activities away. The pre-school room also provides children with the opportunity to enhance their social skills as they form friendships with other children build positive relationships with staff and participate in group activities.
