Preschool (3 - 5 Years)We accept the 15/ 30 hours funding from age 2 onwards. You are welcome to use as many hours as you like between the hours of 9-3 pm but can book in hours either end of this as we are open 7.30 am to 6 pm.
In our Preschool room we provide a structured yet flexible routine to encourage independence and nurture individual personalities. We strive to develop your childs enthusiasm for learning through a mixture of fun, challenging and interesting activities to enable a smooth transition to primary school.
We visit Brocks Hill Park to which we have gated access to- we enjoy taking our snack to Brocks Hill and having picnics or come back to warm milk to warm us up on a cold day.
We also visit the local care home to encourage inter-generational relationships. This benefits both the children as well as the elderly!
We offer transition visits to Glenmere Primary School too, In the Summer term prior to the children starting school they will have weekly visits to Glenmere for a story and to spend some time within the classroom- this has immense benefits and the children settle straight into Reception as they are already familiar to the classroom.
Other schools will arrange visits with us too so they can come and meet the children moving into their school for transition purposes.
