What we learn at Pre-school

Developing independence is a vital factor in a child’s development, and supports preschool children in becoming school ready. The Early Years Foundation Stage supports independence stating that every child should learn resilience, confidence and self-assurance.

 We offer an array of activities to enhance the learning and development of each individual child.  These include: cooking, gardening, arts and crafts, play-doh, role-play, messy activities, sand and water play, ICT, as well as a huge range of toys, games, puzzles and books for children to choose from.

Outdoors we are pleased to be able to offer the children a forest school environment which the children visit in all seasons and weather.  We also have a covered area, where we bring the classroom outdoors, offering a range of activities. We also have ‘wheeled’ toys, playhouse, vegetable garden and sports equipment.
