Here we focus on developing the individual child and helping them to become independent before leaving for school. To do this, we encourage the children’s self choice by allowing them to choose indoor play versus outdoor play and what activities they would like to do within the many areas such as the graphics area, small world, construction, tactile and role play, to name but a few!
They have the opportunity to take part in our various classes, which introduces them to the “class and teacher” environment. We explore the world outside by going for walks and visiting the local church and often have visits from fire fighters and police officers that are introduced due to the children’s interests.
Within the pre-school room we have a happy, thriving environment which helps children with their progression to ‘big school’.
