Our Pre-school room caters for 24 children the staff ratio is 1 adult to 8 children.
Pre-school children have access to a large room that is divided into different areas of learning. Each area of learning is designed to stimulate different areas of development for example the construction area encourages the children to use their imagination, whilst also enriching their language and fine motor skills.
The Pre-school room also has immediate access to the outside play area. Practitioners devise planning following the Early Years Foundation Stage framework offering a high standard of quality care using a variety of resources to develop skills and learning in all of the seven key learning areas. Children are encouraged to develop independent skills by making choices, self-serving at lunchtime and extend their personal hygiene skills in preparation for school. Qualified, experienced staff support children and help them to gain confidence to give them the very best start as they prepare for ‘big school’.
“Children are well prepared for their next stage of learning. They are independent, active and inquisitive learners” Ofsted 2019
