At Pre-School we encourage children to learn through play in a safe, caring, indoor and outdoor environment, encouraging and enabling children to learn and develop both physically and emotionally in their unique way.

We work with families as partners to achieve the best care for their child, helping to ensure their progress, health, well-being and happiness.

Learning

The three main learning areas which are included within our Pre-School are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development: in particular by supporting the transition to and between settings, promoting an inclusive ethos and providing opportunities for each child to become a valued member of that group and community so that a strong self-image and self-esteem are promoted;

  • Communication and Language:with opportunities for all children to talk and communicate in a widening range of situations, to respond to adults and to each other, to practise and extend the range of vocabulary and communication skills they use, and to listen carefully;

  • Physical Development: with opportunities for all children to develop and practise their fine and gross motor skills, increase their understanding of how their bodies work and what they need to be healthy and safe;
