3 years – 5 years
The pre-school is a team of five qualified staff members who ensure a fun start to education for up to 32 children. This is a more structured daily routine ensuring your child is ‘school ready’. Our pre-school teachers encourage independence through meal times where the children ‘self-serve’ and prepare some of their own meals.
The class is occasionally split into age and stage appropriate groups of children, so that key workers can focus on a child’s individual strengths and targets.
A balanced programme of activities is offered in line with the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) guidelines.
Our Grasshoppers have access to their very own ‘free flow area’ giving them the choice of outdoor play which provides continuous provision of learning throughout the day. There are also set outdoor play sessions in order to ensure all children get adequate fresh air and exercise.
Children having a natural love of learning and we believe we should give them every opportunity to develop their skills. From science experiments to life skills sessions, they learn about the world around them.
