The children have opportunities to develop in all areas through play and exploration at our pre-school.
We have a large, open classroom which includes a puppet theatre, dolls house and role-play kitchen. The children have access to puzzles, games, loose parts and creative materials to enable them to develop their critical thinking skills whilst they build, construct and create. These all being fantastic tools to support children with their development.
We have a spacious cooking area as part of our classroom which means that we can regularly bake delicious treats. We also run a cookery club which pre-school children can sign-up for.
Our regularly changing tuﬀ trays promote and encourage a wide range of skills and interests as our children can use their senses to create and develop.
The children also enjoy a wonderful outdoor area including a large wooden sand pit, mud kitchen, music wall, painting wall, ride on toys and a play house. We have a huge range of indoor and outdoor equipment to enhance the children’s love of learning within a creative and caring environment.
Every term we have at least two after school clubs running some examples of previous clubs being Junk Modelling, Lego and Board Games and pre-school children are welcome to attend these free of charge.
As a school, we have a large plantation which we use at break and lunch times and to complete outdoor learning activities. The pre-school children have access to a large, wooden structure with a slide and we love lighting the bonfire and having toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate!
