Our spacious, light, airy Pre-school room is designed for children aged 3-4 years to build a stronger sense of their identity, whilst preparing them for school.
The room offers excellent opportunities that cater for all sevel areas of learning, following the EYFS curriculum framework. To promote independence, the children are free to access all areas of learning as they wish, developing their understanding by exploring, predicting, experimenting, testing, reflecting and responding through investigation, technology, woodwork, dough making, loose parts and large scale sand. All of this encourages the children's imagination, curious minds, language and confidence.

We continuously support our children's physical development and emotional well-being through our daily routine and exceptional outdoor facilities offering the children a large space to develop their gross motor skills. The children begin each day by participating on our Daily Mile run, weekly welly walks, Laughter Yoga and so much more, all of which support them in creating a deeper understanding of how their bodies work and the effects of exercise.
We regularly explore our community as we take educational trips to the local shops, library, post office, Cenotaph or other places of interest. Our parents, community workers and local business are often invited to come in to discuss their roles and safety awareness within our community.
